Ok. I know that for points close to the edge of the set, the numbers
may grow without limit and yet still remain bounded and therefore "in"
the set. Fine. The edge of the set is hard to see given a fixed
length word size.
But how does the maximum iteration count affect the perceived edge of
the set? I would expect that to be a greater effect (especially for
as few as 255 iterations).
