Lang,

That last link was very helpful. It looks like there are some things
missing in the java.awt.geometry package. I'm fairly good with
geometry, so I'll see if I can put together some patches that add the
missing methods.

I'll read the wiki about contributing first.

Thanks,

The Sunburned Surveyor
