The only use of the infinite iterator is, as far as I know, the floodfill
code, where it is used to fill an area with a pattern. The workings of it are
very simple: it checks if it tries iterating over the boundaries of the
underlying device, and resets the current position accordingly.
If this infinite paint_device would act the same way, it could probably just
use the same idea of resetting the position when accessing positions that are
outside the 'real' image boundaries.
