I was fiddling with the feature some more today and noticed it still 
doesn't work for all meshes, particularly a uvsphere mesh.

I can make it work for the sphere mesh but then it won't work for the 
bug blend. Basically I had two possible ways to calculate whether a 
normal was facing in or out. One used the mesh centroid and the other 
used the centroid of an adjacent face and the test face.

The adjacent face method worked for sphere but not test blend. The 
mesh centroid worked for test blend but not sphere. Anyone got a 
suggestion as to how to proceed from here? Its possible we migh need 
to offer a selection of algorithms for this function. Different types 
of meshes need different types of methods.
