It doesn't make sense to discuss on StackOverflow in the comments so I'd
like to move the discussion here.

You said:
"Already using the rtree, I only ask this question because the JTS
implementation of |within| using a prepared geometry is killing
|boost::geometry::within|, and JTS is in java"

I'm curious how did you compare the libraries?
What was the test case?
Many tests for Points within only one Polygon?
If yes, then have you tried to first calculate the bounding box of a
Polygon and use it for the first check to eliminate this difference
between libraries?
Are the benchmarks available somewhere?
