Our boxes are all broken.
There should be somewhere a wiki page or ticker or something about
options to improve the situation. IIRC it boiled down to:
1) Have a BOX geometry type (like LINESTRING/POINT/POLYGON)
2) Expose a GBOX postgresql type (like BOX2D, BOX3D)
Recently, I've started using 2-vertices linestrings to simulate
the equivalent of a "BOX geometry type". It is the value returned
You can easily create such object via ST_MakeLine:
It will support SRID and all supported dimensions.
Changing the BOX3D->Geometry cast ? I'm all for it, and I'd have
it return a "bounding diagonal" too...
