during my work with 3D printers I often came to a point where a new 
functionality of the Triangulate Modifier would be handy. I like to have 
the triangulate modifier produce a Mesh, so that the result can be used 
with other Mesh Modifiers (on same or different object). I am not sure 
if this can be done in Blender (scenegraph or whatever) but would be 
quite usefull (so as a Extrude Modifier which also can extrude Meshes 
without faces)

For example, make a Text Object, add a "Triangulate". Use this (now 
Mesh) for a cube to Boolean Difference the text from the Cube. Voila a 
fully editable "customizable" result.

Maybe it would also be possible to call this a "Convert to Mesh" Modifier.
