Reminds me I have a "todo" item to look at removing some merge bounding 
related code I ran across one day which looks like it dump the objects 
in a merge into the infinite / not bounded bucket once the bounding box 
gets above a certain size.

It triggered at a size that was not that big - and I couldn't figure out 
why it would ever be a good idea(*). If you have bounding for the merge 
of objects, why wouldn't one always use it? How can it be, effectively, 
worse than tossing all the objects into the infinite bucket?

Anyhow, someday I'll dig more into it.

(*) - Maybe there was some pre-auto bounding reason for it? Or it might 
be there is some detail about how the bounding works I don't yet 
understand... :-)
