Hmm - it seems to me that we must either teach the size program about 
subspaces as a generic thing, or else have a target specific extension 
to the program which can display sections and sub-spaces specifically 
for the SOM format.

Personally I tend towards the latter as it could be contained in a 
separate file and only minimally intrudce into the generic size sources.
