I think an important point in a library is that it has a roadmap. GGL
plans to address this!
I think is key to have enough at the beginning so that the library is
useful but the library has to evolve. Having too much at the beginning
might also be bad because there is less focus on the generic stuff !

I thiink a spatial index should be in but its better the "release
early, release often, but with high quality"
