Ultimately, we will iterate over a set of points (as returned by a
range search).

However, we need at *least* 2- and 3-d ranges for most use cases. And
IMO, the interface should support higher dimension. Choosing the
right interface to support both 2 and 3 dimensions *should* make it
easily extendible to k dimensions.

I'm actually *very* interested in k-d ranges... But expect to add
support for them myself at some point, as I'm probably one of very few
who actually wants this capability.
