Hi Thomas,

Your email is objective and I have no interest on a heated debate now
that there is an intent to collaborate. I just felt Michael's email
added to my previous argument and I replied to that.

My reasoning for any library is try to look at this goal stated in the
Boost home page:

"Boost libraries are intended to be widely useful, and usable across a
broad spectrum of applications"

We probably disagree on "widely useful". To me, in the specific
geometry case it translates as "valid for multiple application
domains". Also, in this case, I think there is more value in
collaboration from authors in complementary areas than confrontation.

We should agree to disagree!

I tried to answer your current mail straight and direct in the first part of the mail (so don't interpret the tone as unfriendly, its just meant to be clear and succinct), and then try to go into more detail of the issues raised previously.
