because the 2d namespace contains all those.

Sure, I agree with you all; just a typedef is not enough; the user can
do it, if he wants to do that.

So we can obsolete the whole _2d geometries now (not yet done). Because
they are just typedefs.

So we only keep classes adding things extra (e.g. .x() or .lat() methods)

Yes, certainly. Much better. I followed it exactly.

So it is now like:

This is looking much better than the _deg suffix.
