I'm using Mathematica 7.0 and would like to put the axes at the origin in a 
3D graph instead of showing them on a bounding box.  I have  the 
3D-Axes.nb  (found on    )
but would like a source that can determine the ranges automatically.

This seems like an obvious option for any 3D plot--especially since 
version 7.0 seems to be very receptive to making things look just 
like students would expect to see them.
