That sounds good to me. Such implementation allows to build inplace output
data structure around user provided input.

As a side note, we would probably need to have two counters: one for points
and one for segments. Additional point sites (segment endpoints) that are
not actually part of the input could have the same index as related input
segment and its up to the output data structure to decide how to treat them
for the inplace implementation.
