Thanks !

Ahem.. I assume you're talking about the manual, because the code
*is* under the Boost Licence. And about the manual, I don't recall having
read something that forbids FDL for manuals ... maybe be I missed it ?

You're talking about the template parameter of geom::point<> ? Well, it is
an implementation type (as explained in the manual), something that tells
geom::point<> how you'd like to implement the notion of ``point'' (as XY, as
XYZ, as polar coordinates ... etc).

Maybe in the next version ? But think of this, what is a line ? isn't it
a std::pair<point, point> ? Also, I had the idea of geom::region (a region of
the plan/space) a collection of boxes, geom::polygon<> a collection of
points ... etc ... But lets make sure we have the best points and rectangles
of the planet first :)...

Hope so ...
