That's one reason I never used it, didn't quite understand how to. Given
that topology is such a hot topic, it would be good to put it up front for
more critical review.

What would you think about giving topology.sql more visibility chances
starting with next release ?
At this time the file is not installed on 'make install', doesn't get the
auto-comment and auto-garden threatment, doesn't provide any upgrade path.
It defines a bunch of pl/pgsql functions and 3 types:
2 meant to be only used as return types from functions and 1 being the
topological equivalent of a GEOMETRY
(ie: the spatial component of a topological feature).
Everything is defined under the 'topology' schema, so it's easy to make rid
of everything when sick of it :P
So, do you think such a deviant file might be accepted in the destdir of a
'make install' ? Maybe renamed to postgis_topology.sql ?
I'm hoping such threatment would expose the code to more eyes and possible
testers and eventually raising some interest in funding or contributing
improvements in it.
