Is there any way you could fill an area by picking a point inside an enclosed
space. Basically, you'll have some shapes crossing (or ending on) each other,
forming a enclosed "shape" ... similar to an intersect, but you want to portion
in between.

I can do this type of thing in PhotoShop (which is Raster Based with the Fill
feature), or in AutoCAD (which is Vector Based with the Hatch command). But I
haven't seen anything like this in vector based graphics (except for CAD packages).

What I'm thinking is similar to the Hatch command in CAD, the user picks a point
inside an enclosed space. The command calculates a boundary object from that by
tracing an imaginary line in a radial pattern. Wherever this line crosses a
shape's boundary this becomes the new boundary of the hatch.
