 Unfortunately I plan to change the internals: simplify it, support more
 lightweight type of nodes, serialization and persistent memory. They are
 not ready for making them public.

 AFAIU what you want to do would be to save the whole rtree into the
 database. So basically what you need is the serialization support. I
 started working on it using Boost.Serialization, are you familiar with it?
 Would it be possible to write a custom Boost.Serialization Archive for
 your database in case if the serialization was supported by the rtree?
 Maybe would you like to finish the Serialization support and contribute it
 to the Boost.Geometry? I stopped at some point because I realized that I
 should use a different approach.

 For now you could of course use the details but have in mind that in the
 future they can be changed, though probably to something similar.
 Basically you could use the interface which is there for the experimental
 Serialization support so:

 - use `detail::rtree::private_view<rtree>` and
 `detail::rtree::const_private_view<rtree>` to access depth and

 If you had any problems the Boost.Geometry mailing list is a good place to
 ask questions.
