...nevermind, that's not how you get center X/Y.  Now it stays put for
the most part; I'm getting random incorrect translations that I haven't
been able to solve yet.

Subject: Scaling around a center point...


More transform issues!  As you may recall, I add a translate value to
move objects around the canvas.  Now I'm working on scaling and I like
the scale to be uniform around the center of element.  I get the center
point by asking the Element for its bounding box:


centerX = boundingBox.getWidth() - boundingBox.getX();

centerY = boundingBox.getHeight() - boundingBox.getY();


In the SVG Essentials book I have, it says to scale around a center
point, the translate should be set to:


translate(-centerX * (factor - 1), -centerY * (factor - 1))


Instead of setting the above, I ADD the above to the existing translate
if one exists.  However, when I scale, the element stays nowhere near
the center point.  I tried simply SETTING the translate values, losing
the previous ones and it's still wrong.  Is there a better technique for
scaling around the center of an element, or is my math just wrong
