Iâm probably opening a can of worms here, but how practical/impractical is
it to have points with runtime configurable dimension?
For a specific example, what if one wanted to use an Eigen::VectorXd as the
Since I believe lots of stuff is implemented with template substitution on
the point dimension I realize this may simply be unrealistic wrt the
existing design. Nonetheless, the optimist in me hopes that perhaps a few
key instantiations/overrides could make the library happy to handle this
use case for if not the general use case, perhaps for specific point types.
Of course the 2d only algorithms wonât work in n-d so Iâm only concerned
with those provided by boost.geometry that donât change at >2d.
