My notes about open mesh, from the pyugrid point of view.

>> It's a pretty complex system with a lot of functionality that we don't

>> though it does support general polygonal meshes, which is pretty cool

>>
>> It's very C++y -- and appears to resolve a lot of the specialization
>> at compile time. So not sure how you would take advantage of the
>> generality from Python.
>>
>> It follows a very different data model than UGRID ( and at least the
>> fortran-based codes) and would be hard/impossible to directly map to Numpy
>>
>> What with Boost and all, it's a pretty heavy dependency.
>>
>> So: good idea to keep an eye on it -- one could certainly write a
>> UGRID reader/writer for it, if anyone using it wants to be UGRID
>> compliant.
