No excuse, but for your information, this page, and the page about
robustness, were added as answers to (sometimes many) questions on this
list during the review.

I agree that multi* deserves more attention in examples and
documentation. But, just to be complete now, including
"ggl/multi/multi.hpp" would have solved this problem. Well, actually,
this one was in the documentation (related pages, compiling). This was
probably also be the cause of other problems you've had with multi.

mupo.push_back(po); // for appending
What is written in the docs is that a multi-polygon behaves like a
range. For editing it behaves like a std::container. There were more
comments about this, similar as to the inner containers of a polygon. We
will come back to this, the RangeEx functionality might help here.
