Hi everybody,
as Heiko Kehlenbrink pointed out, s.geom was the only command
able to compute the convex hull of a site point and now
has gone away. This weekend I have coded s.hull, a free (GPL)
replacement to compute a convex hull. Markus provided also
some nice addictions and has put it in the current CVS so
that everyone interested can use it. I've tested it a bit
with random site files and prevented some ill site file configurations
(such as trying to calculate the hull over two points only), 
everything seems to work properly.
Best regards
Andrea Aime
