You are right, but it is even worse than you think. I do not have a 
tutorial so I have no examples to understand.

Reading Cameron et al, I have broken the problem down into:
do something (probably using the word self) that _gives_ me an instance 
of CompositorNodeMapValue.

Then when I done that,
look at some of the attributes (.max, .min, .offset, .size) of the instance.
