Again, lets take your example of extracting the 2D-navigation aspect of GIL
(what you call Display Matrix) into a stand-alone library that you could use for
purposes other than imaging. Your example is manipulating text characters in a
rectangular grid.

Heres another example, of a field representing streamlines round a cylinder:

Now presumably I could combine the locator with some function as in the
mandelbrot example to find out the state of the streamlines at any point in the
flow. Presumably the locator could also be extended to 3D.
