"drawing" grid lines on a surface




I'm trying to figure out the most sensible way to do something. I have a
surface in 3D space,
which may be either an Irregular2DSet or a Linear2DSet (onto which the
Irregular2DSet has been
sampled). A "data" variable determines height of the surface.

I'd like to "draw" grid lines that follow the surface at particular x or y
values; this would enable someone
looking at it to better figure out which parts of the surface relate to
which x and y values.  Other than
drawing a bunch of independent "lines" and adding them to the Display
(which seems a bit
unwieldy), I haven't come up with any brilliant ideas. Is there a sensible
way to do this? Is there
a simple way to create a grid of *lines*, give them a height (or z) value
by sampling the data set onto them, and
then display that?
