Hey Rob,

but if you use the divide sop with Compute Dual, you've got the same 
number of points as you had the number of primitives. Is it because your 
geometry is more complex than the one I'm trying with?

I have the need trick of converting primitives to points with convert_sop using "convert to circles" so i have a point per primitive. But the connectivity between the primitives is the tricky one. I need a line per edge.
