Auto Retopology:

While 3dsmax has many tools for retopologizing a mesh, it really need an auto-retopology tool. A good example would be the tools in 3dCoat or mudbox. A full featured retopology tool would include the following features:
A great example of where this would be useful, I have a collection of individual rock objects that are all intersecting, I want to have now a single object that has the same shape. I add curves to the object at specific seams to make sure those plane changes remain unchanged. I add a higher density mesh in areas that contain more detail. I hit go. And now I have a single mesh that looks very close to my original mesh, but all unified, and from there I can edit it further using traditional tools to look exactly how I want.
