in PostGIS-0.8.1
    g = geomFactory->toGeometry(envelope,geomFactory-
>getPrecisionModel(), SRID);

matches a function in GEOS-1.0 but does not match anything in GEOS-CVS

Pls remember that my original email was addressing two seperate issues
   (1) - the API creep
   (2) - the stability of the geos library due to Asserts /
        Exceptions / SegFaults.  Especially in the context of the
        C program Postgres

the latter involve bugs, the former with tagging and whether fixes to  
1.0.0 or CVS would be appropriate.
