I don't like SetInfo at all. I think the default mode is wrong; the 
only behavior that logically makes sense to me is the mode 1 behavior 
of returning data about the transform geom, not the contained geom.

Here, we agree -- it would be more convenient if GetPosition returned 
the position of the transformed geom, rather than the geomtransform. 
However, that would remove the nice factoring of a geom transform from 
the actual transformed geom.
