    # Attributes are mapped by block pointers (vtkDataObject*), so these can
    # be queried by their flat index through a convenience function in the
    # attribute class (vtkCompositeDataDisplayAttributes::DataObjectFromIndex).
    # Alternatively, one can set attributes directly through the mapper using
    # flat indices.
    #
    # This sets the block at flat index 3 red
    # Note that the index is the flat index in the tree, so the whole multiblock
    # is index 0 and the blocks are flat indexes 1, 2 and 3.  This affects
    # the block returned by mbds.GetBlock(2).
