Thank you for the head up, interesting read, it seems that Type erasure
and virtual concepts are here to stay.

I don't think it will solve all my problems of input types that vary at
runtime, since a any_geometry<> type would be a mix of
different/incompatible concepts. That may help to reduce the number
instantiated template, having a single point type for all the xy, xyz,
xym xyzm variants. I'm going to give it a shot and report.
