Anyone have information or ideas on creating and demarcating non-overlapping, contiguous polygon clusters (say in MxN groupings), most importantly, very quickly and efficiently!  These clusters need then to be able to be retained during object splitting for multi-processor work.  I have some ideas of my own involving indexing into unique clusters and possibly PolygonSelection tags for the selection during splitting but this is going to get a bit complex and gnarly fast - but not necessarily 'gnarly fast'.

Thanks,
