Comment(by hamish):

 I'm super glad of the progress here. Before we go much further I think it
 would be a good idea to go back to the mailing list archives (and private
 emails) and re-read the threads discussing the specific issues which lead
 to the creation of v.buffer2/v.parallel2 in the first place, and revisit
 them to see if those issues are now addressed. Radim's vector TODO list
 talked about it as well.

 I just want to be sure we're betting on the right horse and aren't going
 to run back into the same previously discovered fatal flaws that we've
 forgotten about.

 I've been meaning to do this dig myself for some weeks as I remember bits
 of it, but time has been against me lately.

 short of anything truly fatal in the original reasons for writing
 v.buffer2, that statement is rather hard to argue with.
