Re: [zzdev] Re renderinfo drawing boxes

That's the default implementation so I don't have to copy the code
to both Trivial and SimpleVobSet.

Note that the method is not final: it can be overridden by something
that calls the theme-appropriate routine.

I still think that this has enormous problems. It gets very difficult
to make it consistent when nearby, overlapping cells are connected.

Probably an alpha channel approach would work better there.

Or overlying translucent things.

No, the box shouldn't. Ball and stick is different in many ways from
the normal box stuff. I don't think that the same code can be used.

Of course.
