Hi Cong,

Whether it's safe to do or not will depend the threading you are using
in your viewer.  If you viewer is running single threaded then it
should be fine to use cull callbacks.  However, if you have multiple
cull traversals threads happening in parallel then you'll end up with
a potential race condition unless you mutex your callbacks.

The most straightforward method come to me is using cullcallback to do the update. I implemented it and it works. However, after come across some online articles, most of them are not suggested to use cullcallback. Could I ask is there any drawbacks to do so?
