Hi Adam,

First I'm very interested in your library.

Is it already uploaded into Vault? Could you publish the URL? If you
didn't upload it already, you might consider to use the Boost SVN
sandbox instead.

I probably agree with this. However, I would like to investigate if a
coupling of these two libraries is possible, to provide the users of
Boost.Geometry with a good spatial index which works for them by default
and which can thus also be used for other purposes.
So Boost.Geometry might follow your library, or you might use some
concepts of Boost.Geometry, but I would like to see the sources to say
more about this.

Regards, Barend
