Why are computing pathlines restricted to only model parts?

The computation of pathlines through computed parts is extremely expensive in EnSight as the entire part dependency list would need to be recomputed for many temporal steps (EnSight only keeps one temporal step in memory at a time). By limiting pathlines to model parts, EnSight does not need to recompute all of the dependent parts, making it much faster. The quick answer is that computing pathlines in non-model parts is prohibitively slow.
