Hi, All,

Just for clarification: This was not meant as a "please delay" - I also
think that the sooner we change, the better. But the effort should be
coordinated between related projects, as I already explained on the jts
developer list.

The PostGIS JTS reader relies on com.vividsolutions.jts.io.WKTReader for
WKT, so I will not do much there, and the Java2D reader currently only
supports WKB format, so it is not affected.

It seems that the WKT parser for org.postgis Geometries already
understands both versions and treats them equally, so only the output
had to be changed.

The attached patch against HEAD does this, as well as providing
additional regression tests.

I'll apply the patch to HEAD as soon as I get the OK from here :-)
