  Anything that builds on the "aspect ratio preservation" code needs to stay 
in that branch... it doesn't make sense elsewhere.  I wonder why lines and 
arrows have this at all though.  It goes entirely against the purpose of 
lines and arrows.  They're supposed to stretch and move along with plots and 
labels, and they're supposed to do this relative to the contents rect of the 
endpoints parents.  I think this is making everything very complicated for no 
tangible benefit.

  Right now, the only object I can think of that should be preserving it's 
ratios is picture, with a "possibly" for boxes and ellipses.  (Does anyone 
even use ellipse?)

  In practice, the only boxes I've ever seen used have been to contain plots 
and labels, which means preserving aspect ratio would result in the wrong
