- boundary: (%, DoubleFloat) -> SBoundary PT
`boundary(n, fontScale)`

returns the boundary of a given node, so if this is called on the root node, it will return the boundary of the whole scene. There is a difficulty involving text nodes, that is they have a fixed font size. But we want to calculate the boundary in local coordinates, to do this conversion we need to know the total boundary size but that is what we are trying to calculate! To get round this contradiction the parameter fontScale is required since fonts are rendered at a fixed size we need a scaling factor so that we can give the boundary in our coordinate system. fontScale should be set to the full width of the diagram (not just the width of this node). If this is not known then choose an approximate value. This only affects text nodes, if this node, or its subnodes, do not contain a text node then its value is not significant.

- coerce: % -> OutputForm
- output a full scenegraph could contain a lot of data and so we have to be careful to restrict the output to what is reasonable on the command line. Therefore we do not display all subnodes or the full information from nodes such as IFS.
