Rectangle Reference

Class Rectangle is defined in rectangs.web, and is derived from Polygon, using public derivation.

As noted above in Polygon Reference; Affine Transformations, class Rectangle, like class Reg_Polygon, currently inherits its transformation functions and operator*=(const Transform&) from Polygon. Consequently, the data members of a Rectangle, except for center, are not recalculated when it's transformed. I plan to change this soon! It will also be necessary to add the function Rectangle::is_rectangular(), in order to test whether a Rectangle is still rectangular.
