Nested Grids would seem to be a very useful construct because subportions of 
a large grid could be independently developed. However, I have been studying 
the tutorial/GridsRowsAndColumns and it has only one example and that 
example hides a defect. Here is the slightly modified example with Frames 
added for all elements:

Grid[{{Grid[{{a, b}, {c, d}}, Frame -> All, Background -> Orange],
   e}, {f, g}},
 Frame -> All]

The problem is that the nested Grid does not fill its space. If we use 
Dividers -> Central, they also do not fill to the edges of the containing 
item. It seems that we need something like an ImageMargins option, but that 
is not available. Is there an easy method to get nested grids to fill their 
space in the enclosing grid? Is there a hard way?
