I was looking for some info about convex hull calculation and I came across this website: CGAL Open Source Project

I didn't hear about them before and I was wondering if anybody knows this project and if it might be useful/possible to add it to MW.

It's got a lot of very useful functions like
* 2D Straight Skeleton and Polygon Offsetting
* Convex Hull Algorithms
* 2D Snap Rounding
* A lot of 3D stuff

They've got a lot of different licenses so I don't know if it matches the OS License of MW.

If we could implement CGAL into MW I don't need to create my own convex hull method ;)

[EDIT:]
I found another one:

Looks good as well.

There may also be a convex hull method in NTS which we're starting to put into MW5, though I don't know for certain. Otherwise, I like the idea of incorporating other projects where the licenses agree. Good job finding this.
