Sweep an arbitrary contour along a helical path. The sweep will be performed as a shear along the z-axis, so that the orientation of the contour is displaced, rather than translated, as the contour is swept. The axis of the helix lies along the modeling coordinate z-axis. An affine transform can be applied as the contour is swept. For most ordinary usage, the affines should be given as NULL.
