Maybe so, but that still doesn't help when you want to have a collection
of segments. For example, in my testing I wanted to calculate the
intersection between a huge number of segments, and with GGL's you can't
do this:

typedef boost::tuple<double, double> point_type;
typedef ggl::segment<point_type> segment_type;

//! segment_type does not model the default constructible concept.
std::vector< segment_type > segments;
