Barend, Mats,

Here is the implementation I have managed to complete:

Here is the simple test:

It works for all non-multi geometries: point, linestring, polygon.

Continuation is on my TODO, but I haven't managed to push it forward.
My further plans are to reimplement it using Boost.Spirit and since
Joel de Guzman
announced work on the fabulous Boost Spirit X3, I sort of decided to wait :)


Regardless my plans, I'd appreciate your help in completing the
current implementation.
I am available to help if needed.

Best regards,

Mateusz  Loskot,
