jasondavies Fix #127: circular fisheye scaling factor.
This fixes the scaling value `z` when the focus point is exactly on an
object’s position.

Also fixes #126.

Fisheye Distortion

Demo: http://bost.ocks.org/mike/fisheye/

Implements a fisheye distortion for two-dimensional layouts. Based on Sarkar and Brown’s Graphical Fisheye Views of Graphs (CHI '92), as well as Flare's FisheyeDistortion and Sigma.js's fisheye example.

When constructing a fisheye distortion, you can specify the radius and distortion factor:

var fisheye = d3.fisheye.circular()

Typically, you then update the focal point of the distortion on mousemove:

svg.on("mousemove", function() {

The distortion operator takes as input an object with x and y attributes, and returns a new object with x, y and z attributes. The returned object represents the distorted position of the input object; the z property is a scaling factor so that you can optionally distort the size of elements as well.

For example, to apply fisheye distortion to a force layout, stash the distorted positions in a display property on each node, and then use the distorted positions to update the nodes and links:

svg.on("mousemove", function() {

  node.each(function(d) { d.fisheye = fisheye(d); })
      .attr("cx", function(d) { return d.fisheye.x; })
      .attr("cy", function(d) { return d.fisheye.y; })
      .attr("r", function(d) { return d.fisheye.z * 4.5; });

  link.attr("x1", function(d) { return d.source.fisheye.x; })
      .attr("y1", function(d) { return d.source.fisheye.y; })
      .attr("x2", function(d) { return d.target.fisheye.x; })
      .attr("y2", function(d) { return d.target.fisheye.y; });

There's also a d3.fisheye.scale for Cartesian distortion; see the above demo for an example.
