Good to hear.

Yes, I've had this once with another object. However, I cannot reproduce
it now, using the same boost::filesystem::path

What happens is that the generic stream manipulator in streamwkt picks
the object, while it should not.

I would advise using ggl::wkt(geometry) now and not include
streamwkt.hpp. That is always save.

We can probably solve this problem using SFINAE, but that has to be
found out.
