> SpatialPrefixTree makes "Node"s which are basically a rectangular spatial region that
is more colloquially referred to as a "Cell".  It was named "Cell" in the first place and
for whatever reason, Ryan and/or Chris renamed it as part of extracting it to a top level
class from an inner class.  Most comments and variable names still use the "cell" terminology.
 I'm working on an algorithm that keeps track of a tree of "nodes" and it has gotten confusing
which kind of node I'm referring to, as each Node has one cell.
> In maybe a week or so if there isn't discussion to the contrary, I'm going to commit
a rename it back to "Cell".  And... while we're on this naming subject, perhaps "SpatialPrefixTree"
could be named "SpatialGrid" ?  FWIW the variables referring to it are always "grid".
