Lucanus, can you provide rationale for why you chose to define
redundant operators for the polygonal boolean operations?

Shows both operator| and operator+ as being the same thing - a boolean
OR between two polygons.

If there is some precedent for this, I accept, but if there isn't, I
would much rather prefer a single way of doing things. I suggest
dropping operator+ and operator*. Their counterparts make much more
sense to me.

Hopefully I'll have a chance to look at this library more in depth in
the next few days.
