Re: :zz: Peter's oooo...kay... CONTAINMENT.

About Containment (a very cute feature, I think)--

>do cells contain other cells with other cells in them?

Yes.  Containment consists of connections on the dimensions
 which will be called in the next version "d.inside"
 (showing the relation of containment) and "d.contents"
 (everything in a list on d.contents is interpreted as being
 inside the cell negward on d.inside of the first list-item).

>Is there a "nesting depth"?
