That would probably work, but its no a good thing to get
into the habit of.  The Set.getSamples(Boolean copy) method
can be used to violate the immutability of Set objects.
For a simple application you can get away with it.  But it
circumvents VisAD's event and thread-safeness logic and
might cause very mysterious problems if your code ever
finds its way into a large and complex application.

Very clever, though.

Cheers,
Bill
