Good point.
Initially, I wanted to removed unfilled nodes, but eventually
I decided to keep complete Table of Content displayed as it gives
better picture of what is to be done, etc.

I added small mark (?) to indicate particular node (including its
subnodes) have not been filled yet.

I just copied & pasted these blocks of code, plus indented to make them
recognized by Quickbook as code snippets:

It's a very good point, I fixed it. I decided to use
single geometries or just geometries for point, linestring, etc.
and aggregate geometries for multi-*
Also, I decided to indicate the aggregate geometries are homogeneous
geometries, as we do not support heterogeneous geometry
collection, do we?

Significant update is coming within next 48 hours ;-)

Thanks for review!
