Robin's right, what I wrote should logically be moved into
the framework now - it seems stable enough and I think is
broadly right. I am working on this now and will try to check in 
tomorrow morning.

I did a recursive function getBounds(object) to avoid touching
existing code; I will change this to a getBounds method on
every shapes or widget.   For a visible check, there's a
Sizer object you can create around a chart which will draw
some vile purple borders and show whether it is correct or not.
