[Sidefx-houdini-list] transferring data from points to volumes

I haven't tried this, but a pciterate() should work, basically each
volume sample would find the nearest point(s). This would need
VOPs/VEX of course but would be much faster than an expression. I
don't think you'd need a Volume VOP, but again I haven't actually
tried this.
