Would you be willing to elaborate on that?
Perhaps you'd have an example of geometries in WKT that was not
processed using GEOS with results you expected.

Not quite. The Boost Geometry (BG) documentation clearly state it
"appends one or more points".
The "more points" is given as a range of points.

I may be forgetting that and be incorrect here, hoping Adam will correct me,
but BG's linestring is a valid model of range of points.
So, append should be happy to append a linestring to a linestring, no?

So, once the subjects are identified based on distance, assuming I was
correct earlier, append should do the job.
