Agreed (especially in this case).
But generally, such solutions quickly breaks down. From PIL:
draw = ImageDraw(image)
draw.polygon(xy)
draw.polygon_convex(xy)
draw.polygon_noncomplex(xy)
draw.polygon_complex(xy)
One solution is of course to provide different classes to store the
coordinates in, but that surely messes things up for the poor users.
I don't know, but isn't similar situations very common for numerical
operations. Or is it just our local math guys that make it sound that
way?
