Stable Treemaps

Thinking of implementing a stable tree map algorithm as per Sonda, Speckmann, and Verbeek in this article.

What this is saying is when the data or the size of the window changes, the tree map could look very different. Things could move drastically within the map. Something that was on the lower left could now be in the upper right kind of thing. This is called instability. But with the stable tree map, as the data or the window size changes, things stay relatively close to where they were previously. It also looks like their approach will help with aspect ratio problems if you have any.
