Barend, not really related but a question anyways: why don't you move your
overall activities to the trunk? I know you're not satisfied with certain
details of your library. However, doing the development on trunk (and
Boost.Geometry is an accepted library) gives you more exposure to potential
users and full integration with the regression tests. Additionally, having
the library on trunk doesn't mean you need to merge it to the release branch
for any release in the near future...
