The C Api wraps a small portion of the C++ API.
The thing is that in C++ there are *a lot* of interfaces
exposed which should not be.

You might have noticed that many of the headers were not
installed up to 3.1.x. This was an attempt to reduce the
set of exposed interface.

Remember that GEOS is a direct port of JTS, where (in Java)
there are visibility levels that are not supported in C++
(default visibility == only classes in same package can use
those interfaces). In GEOS those all became public instead.
