Subject: [geometry] Segment to Segment Distance

Hey guys,

I'm trying to find the minimum distance between two segments, however this
feature doesn't seem to be supported

Shows that this is true, however replacing the 1_49_0 with a 1_48_0 shows
that it did in fact used to be supported. I am currious as to why this
support was removed. Or are the charts on the previous version
documentation incorrect?

It seems like the latter may be the case as the tables on the previous
versions site seem to be incorrect.

Eg. Going down the MultiLineString column says that the distance operation
for MultiLineString can be computed against all other geometries except
Segment, Box and Ring. However going across the MultiLineString row says
the only supported geometries are Point, MultiPoint, and MultiLineString.
