I think I've just invented a rather interesting new L-system.

Which doesn't really help if what I'm trying to create is a disc.

Start with arbitrary triangle T_0. Define set "actives" (containing T_0), set "finished" (empty), and set "next" (empty).

While actives is nonempty, for each vertex V_Y in each triangle T_X in actives:
Choose an edge from T_X that contains V_Y. Traverse around V_Y, making links as you go and adding each triangle to next. Mark each triangle with V_Y. Stop when you reach either a discontinuity or a triangle in any set, unless the triangle is in the set "next" and the triangle is marked with a vertex that is contained in T_X.

Add "actives" to "finished", move "next" into "actives", and clear "next".

. . . I *think* this works.

Theory: The best way to determine whether you actually like a particular shortcut device is to take it away and see if you miss it.

(I *like* that volume controller on my keyboard.)
