The need to call "unique" is since now not necessary anymore. The
intersections take case to produce a unique set, themselves. This is
updated in Trunk.

"correct" is only necessary if your input polygons are not closed.
Alternatively you could select a polygon-type which is not closed. So in
the sample you sent earlier, it is still necessary.

I will look to the output of the second call in "difference" later.

I'm curious to the results of your benchmarks.

Regards, Barend
