So, if you're saying that my own personal needs in a library are much
less important that the community's needs, then I totally agree.
Clearly, there has to be some minimum level of functionality for a
library to be generally useful. I'm trying to convince myself that
GGL will be useful to me without a spatial index, and wondering if
others need spatial indexing as much as I do.
Luke, you evidently don't need spatial indexing, so that's one good datum.
I'm guessing that GGL has proven itself useful to it's existing user
base without a spatial index, so that is probably enough data for me
to answer my question.
