Obviously, a default constructed polygon contains no points. Polygons
have to be default constructible so that they can be elements of a std
container. Objects that are not default constructible are a pain. I
have to deal with a legacy polygon type that is not default
constructible, so I have a very clear idea about which way I prefer and
