Thanks for posting these. I have started rebasing my patches on top of
the new geometry - it is a bit different of how I implemented it, but
I'll take care of it.

I'll review as I go - some of the changes I have might make sense to
squash in your patches to keep a clean history...

I'll add a couple of patches abstracting the geometry so that at core.c
level we only work with a single geometry structure. This is they way it
is done in the early patches I pointe you to before. Then it is patches
building bottom-up support for the new features in 2.0.
