I don't dare to give a date on this. It seems like a simple idea, but
when it needs to be combined with rotation it actually becomes quite a
difficult problem to get good results. I still haven't figure out the
right algorithm if there is an efficient one. We could perhaps make it
optional per object, but that wouldn't really solve the problem.

Right. I think auto dicing to get a certain face size rather than
subdivision level still has some use for displacement, but it can be
done in a modifier too.

Probably 2.67, I need some time to investigate algorithms and design here.
