Detects and displays border line information of contigious land owned by the same landowner the scripted object is rezzed in.

//
// LandownerBorderDetector
// Version 20070217-1
// Copyright (c) 2007 by Second Life resident Badpenguin Posthorn
//
// Plop this script in an object and touch the object to display border
// lines and boundary coordinates of contiguous land owned by the same
// landowner. Works by detecting changes in land ownership and is
// accurate up to 0.5 meters. Note that it will only detect boundaries
// on the direct X and Y coordinates from where the scripted object
// resides, so only expect useful results when the boundaries of the
// measured parcel(s) are straight lines. Works on group deeded land
// also.
