[osg-users] Insersector doesn't take into account DrawableCullCallback result

Hi Davide,

The Intersectors don't have specific handling of drawable callbacks so
I don't think it'll be possible to do it how you want.

Personally I wouldn't use DrawableCullCalbacks to toggle on/off
drawables from rendering.  I'd either use a osg::Switch or a NodeMask
that decorates the subgraph that you want to toggle on/on.  The
NodeMask is pretty light weight and with OSG-3.4 onwards will work
with Drawable too, so this is what I'd use.

Another advantage of using NodeMask is because it's a built in feature
rather than use customization it will work with built in features.
You can also use traversal mask in combination with node masks if you
