It doesn't cover surfaces AFAIK. There are R-GL packages which do allow
user-controlled rotations of surfaces (and more). Another possibility is
to write some widget (e.g. in Tcl/Tk) to control the screen argument, and
replot when the argument is changed (as the tkdensity demo does). Under
Windows, the latter works a lot better in 1.8.0 alpha which has buffering.
