Obviously, and more internal memory as well.

But that impact would be predictable and expected (if you have any idea what you are doing). The impact of an adaptive algorithm on the other hand will be much harder to predict and might be even worse if any singularities are present (and this is not even taking into account the effort to create such a new algorithm).

The fact that the current Function app has the same issue (try Y = sqrt(X-pi)) is also an indication that singularities are just difficult to deal with. Which is why I think it would be better to divert the development efforts (for a future upgrade) to supporting implicitly defined and/or parametrised surfaces. Not that that would be trivial either of course, but it would probably be a better ROI than trying to patch up an algorithm for situations for which it is not well suited by design. After all: this 3D stuff works really well for smooth functions already.
