Been misleading. I meant as a GUI option for editing - a paradigm :-).
It does some kind of auto-alignment for brushes: set a gravity or a
push direction, and drop the thing into the map. You only have to
check all facets of the moving brush against all others, is
O(N_brushes) or O(N_facets). This is not useful for CSG operations,
obviously :-).
