Could you expand a little on this? How would the @columns and @faces
It seems to me that the faces of a 3d object are like the pages of a
manuscript, and that columns are subdivisions of pages, or of faces, for
that matter. Put another way: isn't it the face that has a layout,
rather than the layout consisting of multiple faces? Or am I
misunderstanding you completely?
