No, I cannot qualify that phrase. You see the convex hull in most
libraries, e.g. wykobi, and in most textbooks on geometry, and in every
spatial database, and can be used to figure out things like diameter.
Therefore I consider it as basic.

If you've read all my mails I tried to avoid exactly that, giving
objective statements and objective measurements.
