Yes, some help would be welcome.
Based on the valuable comments from the boost list I'm now implementing
the changes leading to this new design with xy and latlong points,
strategies and algorithms. This is exciting but takes some time of
course. Besides this we also planned to Opensource/templatify/boostify
our projection algorithms. So in the end it is more work than planned.
And of course there might be more rework if more people from different
environments will examine the preview.
Therefore I was triggered to the Summer of Code request on this list.
The preview will soon be published again and it would be nice to get in
contact with interested people who like the design and want to help with
the "completion" (if a geometry library is ever complete).
