Subject: [geometry] Boost Geometry Performance vs LibSpatialIndex.

I was looking at this benchmark https://github.com/mloskot/spatial_index_benchmark <https://github.com/mloskot/spatial_index_benchmark> which attempts to compare the performance between Boost Geometry and LibSpatialIndex. This is done on the r-tree data structure. It caught my eye that Boost Geometry was magnitudes faster than LibSpatialIndex. Is there an obvious reason for this? Design considerations and trade offs?
Thank you :)
I have posted this on the boost mailing list but this seems to be the suitable place to ask the question. I apologies for the duplication.
