That's probably true: it's all the dimensions flattened to level, but
maybe it sounds like it'll show only one plane of the space. Still
ConnectionRaster sounds so general, there's connections in all rasters.
And it doesn't show only a Single cell. The name should tell of showing
_all_ the connections leaving the cell.
I thought of it as a map: it maps the space to a plane _and_ helps you
to navigate. I have a vision of it's looks, and it would look
somewhat like a _compass_ - just with several needles.
