The reason is that in this case the broad interest of the community is
a library that can satisfy multiple application domains not a single
one and a good base is necessary.
Boost.Polygon doesn't provide that base although it may have
algorithms brilliantly implemented!.
I am asking you to reconsider your decision and also provide your
expert opinion so that GGL can be acceptable as a base where the
Polygon algorithms can be included.
I know there might be a lot of work involved, just start with the
minimum necessary and fold Polygon algorithms as a significant part of
it. I think Boost wants a library that attracts further contributions
not a situation that distracts users and alienates future
