I just updated to boost 1.55 and ran into the propblem of breaking changes
on transform strategies.
Reading the announcement, I was wondering if I am doing something wrong.

The reason I ask is that it sounds as if the transformations can somehow be
done without the strategies.
Right now I rotate and translate geometries in templated functions, let's
template<typename tSegment, typename tPoint>
tPoint doFancyStuff(const tSegment segment)
In the function's body I currently do things like
trans::translate_transformer<tPoint, tPoint> translate(...);
trans::rotate_transformer<tPoint, tPoint, boost::geometry::degree>
With the change, as I see it, I now have to declare the strategies as
Am I missing something? Could this be done easier? Or if not, (out of
curiosity) what is the benefit of the new way of doing it? I have to write
much more now.
Additionally, it might be a good idea, to announce these changes as breaking
in the release notes. I read those and thought: Well no breaking changes, so
I can update with no problems. ;-)
