That's quite different from the problem Lachlan is talking about.  What 
you're saying is that the root of the shadow tree does not appear in the 
final flattened tree at all, which is true.  What Lachlan wants is 
things that appear in the final flattened tree but do not generate boxes 
of their own; their children's boxes are just placed in their parent
