[geos-devel] PR for new GeometryFixer API

JTS recently had a class called GeometryFixer added.  The class provides
functionality to accept any invalid geometry and convert it to a valid
one.  This plugs a noticeable gap in the JTS API!

Paul R has ported this to GEOS:  https://github.com/libgeos/geos/pull/433

It performs a similar function to the existing GEOS MakeValid (which was a
port of the PostGIS ST_MakeValid).  But it has some differences in
semantics which are simpler and (hopefully) a useful alternative.

See the PR for links to documentation of the functionality of GeometryFixer
(and there will be more docs and images coming soon).

Feedback is welcome, as always.
