Hey Andrew,

I've setup a system where we baked out P to maps, then used cops to 
calculate the surface derivatives. Should also work with uvs. There's a 
derivative vop that wraps up easily into a cop node.

Someone might have a better idea that doesn't involve baking though... 
I'd be keen to hear it!

Cheers,
r.
