If this can be done quickly, do it. Otherwise defer.

OpenGL guys will be very busy with volume rendering and depth peeling before the release. I am deferring this until later.

This is an important feature requestbut is probably not critical It is one of the major differences between ParaView and EnSight (i.e., ParaView weaknesses). Lack of this feature causes a major performance hit, and can make wire frame meshes a mess.

VisIt does this too. We should figure out whether it can be done without using fancy GLSL stuff. Otherwise, let's use the code from VTKEdge.

Code from VTKEdge is already available as a Example plugin. The only reason why it's not standard plugin is because it doesn't work in parallel. That needs some work.

This is not exactly the same thing, but there is an option to cull back (or front) faces. Thus, you could turn on wireframe and cull back faces. IF your data is manifold you get a result that is close to what you describe. You should check to see if this satisfies the point of this request.

Closing since the current Backface Style controls are good enough.
