Subject: [ggl] Voronoi diagram code?

There is a recent conference paper by Held et al where floating-point
algorithms are compared to exact arithmetic/predicates, which you may
find interesting:

It's quite clear how to interpret the runtime results (exact
arithmetic slows down the vroni algorithm by a factor of 50-70).
However it's less clear to me how to interpret the accuracy data.

If anyone builds a set of test-cases and makes these publicly
available it would be interesting to redo these benchmarks. My code is
similar to vroni, but handles only point-generators at the moment.
