I know shape-inside has been punted to level 2, so consider this a
suggestion for that level.

I'm watching Lea give a talk about border-radius right now, and she's
demonstrating the use of shape-inside to make text in an element
conform to the border-radius.  She points out how awkward it is,
because you have to duplicate the element's size and border-radius in
the rectangle() function.

I suggest we add a "box" keyword to shape-inside, which is nothing
more than the shape of the box.
