#328 Using "samples" for isoline sampling in hidden3d

Currently, gnuplot does not permit the "set samples" parameter to determine the sampling of splot isolines when hidden3d is implemented. This strikes me as a limitation that could be overcome with some attention. It's quite alarming to apply "set hidden3d" and have a gorgeously rendered splot turn jagged. And it's disappointing to not be able to use the gorgeous higher sampling with the hidden3d option; I hate having to choose when I really want both! I'll be happy to tackle this will a little bit of help.

For example, the jaggedness in these plots (http://www.gnuplot.info/demo/hidden.html) could be alleviated if "set samples 100" affected them like they do when hidden3d is not set.

    The requested feature is simply not compatible with the way hidden line removal is done in gnuplot.
