faceDistance returns the closest perpendicular distance from a set of points to a set of triangles.
At the moment it returns only the points and distances (and the footpoint).

It would be nice to have for each point also the triangle to which the point is the closest.

I think that this info can be obtained simply by replacing:

<pid = where(inside)[0]>
<pid,tri = where(inside)>

Then adding this line:
