Yes -- there will be a drop-down menu on the property panel that lets you
select arbitrary inputs from the pipeline browser the produce the supported

Unfortunately, it looks like there will still be some hoop-jumping needed
for multicolored glyphs. The glyph mapping engine doesn't support
multicolored glyphs at the moment, since it doesn't fit well with the
current coloring logic in vtk/paraview's glyphing.
