Or maybe, we could get by with just adjusting the mutual positions
of the two extents when they are unite()'d...
trying to think of what this simplification might break:
ok, why do we care about the extent, with its [UP] and [DOWN]
parts, instead of just the length? - because some of the variables
in the layout are relative to the middle line, not the edges of the
bounding box.  If we vertically shift the begin- and rest- extents
for the systems against each other, we no longer have a clear
definition of middle line, so we are broken.  Am I missing a way
to solve this, in a way which is easier than a full implementation
of two rods?
