Is anyone relying on bounds.getHeight returning (top - bottom) instead 
of Math.abs(top - bottom)?

The name height implies a positive value to me (it's names like top and 
bottom that are unfortunate).

I doubt that there is much interest either way, but I was wanting to at 
least poll the crowd to see if there was any strong opposition to having 
bounds.getHeight return the absolute difference.

I don't think anybody has ever asked for the same with getWidth - but 
maybe that's because there aren't too many left is positive coordinate
