### use a colormap for implicit_plot3d

Here's a question I asked a while ago on sage-support, but never go answered, so I'll try it again here:

I've been trying to figure out how to plot a surface using implicit_plot3d, and color it according to a particular color map. I see that implicit_plot3d passes its arguments to

sage.plot.plot3d.implicit_plot3d.ImplicitSurface

but I can't figure out more than this . . . when I try

sage: sage.plot.plot3d.implicit_plot3d.ImplicitSurface??

I get

Error getting source: could not find class definition

and then a few more unhelpful details.

It seems like the two possible viewers are jMol and Tachyon, but I can't tell whether either of these support color maps.

Any ideas where else I should be looking?
