If it is to be the de facto ruby binding for GEOS, it should expose the same flexibility that GEOS provides, including control over when and whether to produce a prepared geometry, so that clients that need that level of control can have it. A transparent implementation is very useful and could also be done, but it should be an optional API that can be turned on or off.

So how do you like an explicit .prepare() on Geometry objects ?
And maybe an .unprepare() to release memory associated with the preparation.
