Retrieving 3D Tree::Draw("a:b:c") result

Dear Rooters,
I quote from the On-line "Reference Guide" TTree::Draw() method description:

<<For a three and four dimensional Draw the TPloyMarker3D is unnamed, and

   cannot be retrieved.>>

is it always true, even in the newest ROOT version?

any plan to change?

Acutally, I practically can affect the characteristics of a family of TPloyMarker3D via the TCanvas Editor.
Infact: let's superimpone various 3D-TTree::Draw() result onto the same TCanvas.
  by simply clicking with the mouse onto a marker belogning to one family of the drawn TPolyMarker3D markers

Unfortunately I should do it automatically in a programmmm

  Finally, any suggestion how to get acces to the desired TPolyMarker3D ( in order to change their colour, size, style)?

System used : Mac OS X
ROOT version: 4.02/00
gcc version : 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1640) //---

Thanks a lot!!
