/* This is a 3d view of a region3d.  The view contains two types of data:
   1.  the 3d points of the region3d, which are kept in VIEW coordinates, and
       can be projected directly to the screen
   2.  angular/cartesian position tracking data, which allow the 3d points
       mentioned above to be updated, with the LEAST amount of computation

   This class could be templatized with little trouble to work with
   both 2d & 3d objects.  It would need to be parameterized by point, region,
   and transformation matrix types.
