  Description     : classes for working with geometric types in postgresql/postgis

 A package of classes for working with geometric types in postgres.
 The package contains two collections of classes:
 * The first were designed for use with the geometric functions
   supported by Postgresql (http://www.postgresql.com) although 
   they do not need Postgresql to be present for them to be used.
   The types implemented are those listed in the Postgresql 
   documentation at http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.3/static/datatype-geometric.html 
   with the exception of 'line' which, as the documentation is says, 
   is 'not fully implemented yet'.
 * The second were designed for use with the PostGIS/OpenGIS 
   extensions to postgres. All these classes begin with "OG" so
   as to avoid name clashed with the standard postgres types.
