[geos-devel] equalsExact

I noticed the c api exposes the equals method on geometry but not 
equalExact.  The equals method is a topological comparison while the 
equalsExact compares geometries node by node (you can specify a 
tolerance for the comparison)..

I find equalsExact useful when writing tests cases (for example, geom1 
-> wkb -> geom2, then geom1.equalsExact(geom2)).

I was wondering if this is more generally useful and should be exposed 
as part the c api?
