Hi Doug,

Ugh - I certainly didn't mean to center an entire page! Thanks for the
comments - I'll do another round of clean-up, including addressing the
above comments, and then commit.

One thing though - the GridPositionMap concept is really a refinement
of the PositionMap concept, since the positions it maps to are
guaranteed to be "grid points" - in this case, non-negative integers,
whereas the PositionMap seems to map to real numbers. Or is this too
trivial a distinction?
