You can try:

  GraphicsModeControl mode = display.getGraphicsModeControl();

but unfortunately that will show all the extra lines connecting
the triangles of the Irregular2DSet into a polytriangle strip
(this is done to reduce memory use and speed up rendering).

Your best bet is to try to trace the edges in your irregular
topology using a few long continuous lines, each represented
by a Gridded2DSet with manifold dimension = 1 and combined in
a UnionSet. The key is to keep down the number of lines used
to trace your topology. Sorry I don't have a better answer.
