The goal is to build a new and improved alternative to the 'Grease Scatter Objects' addon which should be removed if this addon is accepted.
The addon is not ready yet.
It might turn this functionality into a tool, however the API for that is not done yet.
Also this code depends a little bit on this patch: D3779
Removing this dependency is easy though. I'm just working on the gpu api and the addon at the same time.
