I think you are stuck doing six squares using [polygon] for each in an
abstraction for now.  Shouldn't be too difficult, but obviously there are better
ways.  I'm going to add a Z dimension to vertex_grid just for this sort of thing.

More like .90 at the rate we're moving.  The objects should be committed to CVS
after 0.888 is released - whenever that happens.
