These macros are very cool! That code was right on, it works perfectly if I
set the new origin to a constant.
e.IntersectWith.Origin = [x,y,z]

Now for writing computeNewOrigin(), I looked at dir(imageInput) but I didn't
see properties like "spacing" or "cellSize" - where should I look to find
out how to get those properties from an image in python?
