That is exactly what I am proposing. You hit the nail on the head,
there are too many points out there that we would have to interact with.
That is the problem I'm solving, that is why I'm submitting the library
assert(boost::point_concept<cgal::Point> cgalpt(10,20) ==
and better yet
//construct a cgal polygon data structure with the boost polygon
constructor and assert that it is equal to the boost polygon data
structure constructed from the same input vertex sequence.
assert(boost::polygon_concept<cgal::Polygon> cgalpoly(itBegin, itEnd) ==
Smooth as butter.
