I think a single index would be simpler on our side and if the user requires different data types for point and segment they can handle that on their end with a simple abstraction on top of the index such as indexing to a boost any. Having two different types of index doesn't enable anything, it simply makes one specific use case more convenient. Common use cases will be only points or only segments in the input, so complicating the interface for the mixed case seems like over design.
