Well, the one I quoted already exists. But here's the problem: we have a
certain max rectangle that we want thumbnails to fit into. And we have a
desire to make them at least a certain size. So really, we want two
rectangles: a minimum rectangle that the thumbnail has to be larger than (in
one or both dimensions), and a max rectangle that it has to fit inside for
I think the thumbnailHeight in the above is the same thing as the
minimumHeight in Thumbnail; perhaps there weren't too many vertical skinny
Morphs to worry about.
