    Boolean stretch_boxes;
    Boolean uniform_border;
    Dimension border;

The GeoMatrix is the mother of all GeoUtils structures. In it, we have control information for how the layout is to be performed, info on each child, margin information, etc. Also, when you look at the GeoUtils, keep in mind that the developers intended for it to work both in row major and column major layout (i.e., up and down rows, and side to side columns). The comments in XmP.h indicate that they didn't get any further than row major layout, though. Column major layout hasn't even been implemented in M*TIF 2.0 - the comments are still there.

Let's look at each member:
