has there been a discussion about the name of the library?

with other libraries that has come up and the conclusion was that there are
already enough "* Template Library" aka ?TL.
Generic Geometry Library comes down to "Generic * Library" aka G?L because
like you said "generic" doesn't say anything about the domain of the library,
but about the programming style.
not much different than "Template".
so what's left is: G
