And yes, using the shortest distance to another mesh is a good idea – I 
think I’ll try to implement it next week, it shouldn’t be too hard :)

No, the change is on the fly (ie the original vg is not modified, the 
modifier does a CDDM_copy of the given derived mesh and modifies that 
copied data layer). So the change is only available for modifers below 
in the stack.
