I just had a glance on the library. One thing that strikes me is its 2D
perspective, which
is not reflected in the names. I would at least call the namespace
geometry2d or the
classes point2d .... It really seems awkward to use the generic names
for the specific
2D case. That being said, from my point of view any geometry basic layer
(ie basic
representation not the sophisticated algorithms) should be as dimension
agnostic as possible...
but I may be biased.
