I've been the 'const' pusher in GEOS. I tried adding
const-correctness here and there to help maintainance
and reduce unneeded copies.
I could take the const out of SegmentString but I guess
JTS code itself is not enough to tell what the intended
behaviour is.

Asking Martin is the way to go :)

Martin is the JTS designer.
