Furthermore, the CGAL 2/3D Kernels -which are very very good and mature-
will be available under the LGPL license somewhere this year, so I guess it
won't payout to write a boost basic geometric library.

Once the Kernels are made publicly available, we can see to convice the
developers to have them (or a subset) under the Boost license instead of

In any event, the Kernel documentation is available, so I recommend to look
at it before designing a basic geometry library.
