Subject: [ggl] Quick question about bg::difference

Hum, after running more test cases here is what seems to happen:
bg::difference(MultiPolygon, Polygon) and bg::difference(Polygon, MultiPolygon) will return always return the polygon if they are disjoint.
bg::difference(Polygon, Polygon) will always return the 1st polygon if they are disjoint.
