Hi Petr and Gregg,

Oops #2 - An intended reversion. I have a modified user.r to
with the upside that things are made convenient for myself and the
downside that I don't see what everyone else does. I think I'll revert
to a standard user.r since long term that save far more work.

Yes I think that is the answer. My query arose in the context of the
case where the grid is dealing with an arbitrary cell face. You don't
know what style the user is going to give you and therefore what their
behaviours are. But given the other comments in your email and Petr's
great comments it is not such a big problem, because maybe we make
some contraints that remove the issue.
