Excellent!

I'm thinking there's scope for some optimization here - removing points between
collinear segments, removing duplicates (for drawing the edges, at least) - this
would make the cells much lighter, and if done at the right stage improve
parsing time.
Coupled with aggregation of max() as you described before (like a binary tree or
similar), this could definitely be improved :)

Different seed shapes would also be interesting.
