Do you have a convenient algorithm (or better a program) for calculating this? If so,
how about passing it on to Steve Broyles for incorporation into a future release. Or
even better, since most of these kinds of interpolations are necessarily irregular
(eg. "down the meanders...") would be the ability to plot a series of points (at the
bends, say, of a river) and have the bounds generated automagically by the program,
connecting the plotted dots (this is assuming the presence of one of Steve's overlays,
or other importations showing river course and the like).
