class Frame:
	'''
	A Frame is a piece of space in a document that is filled by the
	"flowables" in the story.  For example in a book like document most
	pages have the text paragraphs in one or two frames.  For generality
	a page might have several frames (for example for 3 column text or
	for text that wraps around a graphic).
	
	After creation a Frame is not usually manipulated directly by the
	applications program -- it is used internally by the platypus modules.
	
	Here is a diagramatid abstraction for the definitional part of a Frame
