:gzz: MUCH BETTER (wuz Asymmetry of Vanishing View: Family Tree example

Hi Tuomas--

Thanks for helping me correct the discrepancy.

When both columns are not loops, it looks right (enclosed pic).

However, when both columns *are* loops, it looks goofy (2d pic).

I think we need more options on your vanishing view.
 Absent that, if it had to be one particular way, I'd much prefer to see
 the columns going downward from the current cell than up.

Best, Ted
