I've been looking at the proposed boost geometry library at:

Two issues so far:

1) geometry::linestring seems unecessary, it just wraps vector, deque,
list. Why? If every library wrapped the standard containers in this
way, we'd have an explosion of these wrappers. The library should
just use vector, deque, etc. directly.

2) The library should support std::back_inserter. Functions, such as
geometry::simplify should work like this:

std::vector<geometry::point_xy<int> > points;
boost::geometry::simplify(oldpoints, std::back_inserter(points));
