// .NAME vtkAnnotationLayersAlgorithm - Superclass for algorithms that produce only vtkAnnotationLayers as output
// .SECTION Description
// vtkAnnotationLayersAlgorithm is a convenience class to make writing algorithms
// easier. It is also designed to help transition old algorithms to the new
// pipeline architecture. There are some assumptions and defaults made by this
// class you should be aware of. This class defaults such that your filter
// will have one input port and one output port. If that is not the case
// simply change it with SetNumberOfInputPorts etc. See this class
// constructor for the default. This class also provides a FillInputPortInfo
// method that by default says that all inputs will be vtkAnnotationLayers. If that
// isn't the case then please override this method in your subclass. This
// class breaks out the downstream requests into separate functions such as
// ExecuteData and ExecuteInformation. For new algorithms you should
// implement RequestData( request, inputVec, outputVec) but for older filters
// there is a default implementation that calls the old ExecuteData(output)
// signature. For even older filters that don't implement ExecuteData the
// default implementation calls the even older Execute() signature.

// Description:
// Set an input of this algorithm. You should not override these
// methods because they are not the only way to connect a pipeline.
// Note that these methods support old-style pipeline connections.
// When writing new code you should use the more general
// vtkAlgorithm::SetInputConnection(). These methods transform the
// input index to the input port index, not an index of a connection
// within a single port.
