Medial manufactures A-trails

OK, now I get it. The map operation Medial turns any map into a literal forest of A-trails—there's one for every spanning tree in the map or its dual!

Find a spanning tree in the dual of the map, then trace along the medial staying within a face of the  primal until blocked (reflected) by the spanning tree.
