I thought to myself, 'surely, holding two centers, which can double the number of distance computations or more for a single score, can't be as fast as only holding one, even if the bounds end up being a little looser'.  But after I tried implementing it, and removing the `hollowCenter` member, the runtimes were always about 10% slower.  So it seems that `hollowCenter` is the right way to go here.
