I've added the TYPEGLOB definitions to incorporate the ID's and naming 
that we discussed earlier.  The "defines:" entry under the TYPEGLOB 
tells what the * in the glob defines.  This defined variable may then 
be referenced elsewhere in the spec.

e.g. the layer_ID is defined as the * in the layer_entity typeglob.  
If a "layer_ID" value type appears in an entity definition, the 
referenced layer can then be found with:
  $file = './layers/' . $layer_ID . '.yml';

In other words, the typeglob could be put to a s/*/$ID/ replacement to 
find the filename.


I'm working on the spec and the formatting conventions of said spec 
simultaneously here, so bear with me.  I'll write-up the formatting 
conventions once I know exactly what they are.

There are some other changes here.  Namely, I've separated the 
properties which are shared by any geometric_entity object.

"I've often gotten the feeling that the only people who have learned 
from computer assisted instruction are the authors."
