Agreed, no compatibility problem adding a GEOSFree.
Only, it'll have to stay (I've read Mateusz suggesting using
type-specific destroyers).

Worth going throught the CAPI header files and properly document 
when to use GEOSFree on the return right above the function. 

PS: I've noticed Frank added a ChangeLog entry manually.
    Was that the way ? As I haven't touched it :(
