    173173Researchers interested in working with experiment layouts manipulate the layout aspect of an experiment.  It is possible to have multiple layouts definitions for an experiment that are divided into regions differently, as long as they all are isomorphic.

    175 When a layout aspect is added, the testbed generates aspects of type layout and the following subtypes.  This happens whether the layout aspect is added using `experimentCreate()` or `addExperimentAspects()`.

    186186A new version of the layout can be added at any time using `addExperimentAspects()`, but the call will fail for layouts that are not isomorphic to the experiment's current layout aspects.  Adding a layout to an experiment without a layout aspect always succeeds.

     188Calls to `addExperimentAspects` or `createExperiment`specify the type as layout, no sub-type, and a name for the view as `name` if needed.  The data block is a topdl v2 description of the layout.  As yet no incremental change format is defined, so `changeExperimentAspect` on a layout aspect always fails.
