[postgis-users] MultiPoint WKT change proposal

It seems we got wrong the proper WKT format for MultiPoint
(due to errors in the specifications)

For details:

PostGIS accepts both forms, but provides the wrong one in output:

  Accept: MULTIPOINT(0 0, 0 1);
  Accept: MULTIPOINT((0 0), (0 1));
 Provide: MULTIPOINT(0 0, 0 1);

I think we should "correct" that output, even if this will mean
some pain for existing client applications expecting the "wrong"
one. What do you think ?
