###Multiple input ports with vtkPythonProgrammableFilter###
vtkPythonProgrammableFilter can now accept multiple input ports if the number
of input ports is defined in the XML plugin file with the *input_ports* attribute.
The different input ports are then defined with InputProperty having each a
different *port_index*:
<SourceProxy name="Name" class="vtkPythonProgrammableFilter" label="label" input_ports="2">
<InputProperty name="Source" command="SetInputConnection" port_index="0">
<InputProperty name="Target" command="SetInputConnection" port_index="1">
