I'm not familiar with what GEOM is and isn't. Could you point me to info
that explains it?

My main thought is that we want something that works in a wide-variety of
partitioning schemes, so we don't want to go with a one-size-fits-all
idea. Though as one of the many labeling schemes we know, it'd be fine.

Take care,
