Any ideas on the following:

0) In the viewport, go into Top view.
1) Lay down a Grid SOP.
2) Lay down a Curve SOP. Draw an open polygonal curve that snakes across 
the grid. Endpoints of the curve cannot lie inside the grid.
3) Repeat step 2) any number of times.
4) Merge the curves.
5) Lay down an Add SOP with a single point that lies within the grid.

The aim is to procedurally extract from the grid the unique polygon 
clipped by the various curves (4) that contains the point (5).
