I redid the rectangle algebra. The idea is avoid drawing parts of morphs 
that are not visible. Change set is 0825. If you disregard the unrelated 
#drawStringXXX methods, it should not depend on anything else.

But please, do download the system, play with it, and experiment with 
this (and anything else) inside the system. I want more users, even if 
occasional. And please do comment on your experience.
