First of all I think you did a good job, again thank you very much for that.

There was quite a bit of discussion afterwards, large parts of which are in
patch #9000 (https://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?9000), see e.g., comment #20),
and in the maintainers ML
see posts starting from March 17, 2017).
Boost 1.60 on which your code was based didn't have features we needed but
Boost-1.6.1 couldn't be used with your code; IIRC in the mailing list
discussions John Swensen explained that later Boost versions showed to be
less stable than hoped for.

That said, your code did work and I used it for some time.

As to several m-file functions, right at the moment I'm busy merging some of
them with results of a later student project and with stuff I wrote myself,
some much earlier.

For the rest I 'll leave it to the geometry package maintainer to comment.
