Hi Chien,

I'm not jazzed about creating two new packages here. It seems like these things should all be grouped in the same place as camera, or shape3d. Ideas?

Can this be efficiently implemented? We ripped out boundsInScene because it was impossible to get it fast enough. Why would this be any different?

The rest looks good.
