Actually I'm keeping the nsphere green, though indeed many algorithms
aren't implemented for this Geometry. However some time ago I
implemented a subset allowing to store nspheres in the rtree.

FYI, I'm planning to propose to use similar interface for
ellipsoid/sphere models we were talking about, to use core/radius as a
part of the concept. So this could be released as well.

I agree, I took care of some of them already (nsphere). Most of them are
failing becasue recent changes in distance and robustness upgrades. But
dissolve() is failing since I can remember.
