Yes, it is Boost Geometry (aka Generic Geometry Library, GGL)

Yes, I understand but it should be done anyway. If not now, then I'm
worried we will keep it being deferred and deferred.
Nobody likes to write docs :-)

Anyway, Doxygen + Quickbook integration I'm testing now seems to be a
great time saver indeed.

Yes indeed, Paul Bristow already pointed this solution and I'm getting
good results.

Thank you very much for your offer, but I think I can make it myself for
now. I'm reading Jamfiles of other libraries like Units or Accumulators
and crafting one for Geometry. Actually, I'm already generating some
test docs with it.

Great thanks. I will have one question but I'm going to post it
separately here.
