Didn't know that, thanks for pointing out. toWKT is fine with me. Will address
in the RFC.

Sure, where's the best place to look for a template/how-to? At one point I 
had re-written much of the Python testing as Perl but inadvertantly deleted
them (dammit) and have never had the energy to redo it. Plus, your work has
come so far anyway.
