Allow display on non-linear frame (as hyperbolic)
Actually, it seems all nodes are equal. Whatever you navigate in tree, all is seen. When so many nodes exist (in big tree), it become hard to read something.
If you use a hyperbolic scale from the reading node, you can adjust what you read.
You can see this idea already in treebolic project.
No idea if it is better to consider that as a matrix transformation (lens) on View or as a real issue in node process.
(Thanks for your nice description Glen)

Treebolic appears to just show the distance as (reverse) hyperbolic. It would seem that what is desired would be more like a fish-eye lens. What is farther from the current node is not only packed more closely but also smaller. Thus, it would give the normal appearance of being farther away.
