Hi,

I'm developping a geographical object type, very close to the geographic
type of PG. For the moment it is set up as external functions...

I would like to add indexing capabilities, and I have seen that indexing for
PG geographical objects is on the TODO list for 7.1. 

I would like to get in touch with the person maintaining this part of the
code, and see if I could transfer some of these algorithms to my code...

At the end, these new geo objects could be incorporated in PG, but that up
to the PG dev team...

Cheers..
