I've always dreamt of boost.geometry supporting 3d, and qvm might be a way
to accomplish that. However, it might make the most sense for
boost.geometry 3d components to utilize qvm under the hood to implement 3d
geometric functionality rather than make qvm part of boost.geometry.
Perhaps others can imagine better ways to accomplish these goals.
