Hi Pieter,

this may not directly answer your question, but you could use the
existing JSTS library: https://github.com/bjornharrtell/jsts - this is
basically a port of the Java Topology Suite. The advantage would be
that you don't need a JS wrapper - you could use JTS on the server and
JSTS on the client. And if things you need are missing in JSTS, you
could contribute them.

Just my 2¢ - sorry if they are inappropriate.
