Just for the record, I don't just know CGAL well. I am one of its active
developers and even contributed to the internal discussions that lead to this
piece of text you just quoted (for no clear reason though)

I also invested quite some time working with BOTH GTL and GGL authors on the
technical details of the robustness issues on their respective libraries, so I
know in quite detail how the libraries handle this, FWIW (though as I say I am
not sure what you point is here)
