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.
