In the meantime, could you please get it checked into CVS?

Simply tagging the first checkin with
'just-received-not-yet-ready-for-primetime' would help.
That way others might have a chance to get working on partial
implementations for readers in the meantime.
I, for one, wish an EnSight reader that doesn't segfault when it comes too
close to nfaced cells ;)

I think that lots of people could live without things like the native
input/output provided that we can have a vague idea of what the API and vtk
cellType might look like. Of course, a very basic functionality would also
be quite nice (and other things disabled with #ifdef's). This way we can
start seeing what needs to be done to the various readers to target this
