Yes, I remember the discussion... And the C API seemed to make sense for 
GDAL, but now that I've started to use OGR as well, the C API seems a 
little limited compared to the C++ one. The Geometry hierarchy in OGR 
really cries out for an object oriented API, while GDAL doesn't seem to 
have quite the same needs.

I wonder then, whether the OGR C API could do with some enhancements to 
provide functions that are more focused on specific geometry types?
