While asking about how to calculate the Oriented Bounding Box (OBB) of
a polygon or point set [1] I realized that there exists a function
MinimumDiameter() in GEOS [2].
Now, I'm wondering how to integrate this into PostGIS.
Unfortunately I'm not a C programmer and i don't how to the process
goes for new features in PostGIS.
Can somebody help?

Yours, S.
