I think we're in danger of both oversimplifying and overcomplicating and that
(1) we should get requirements from geo folks, and (2) linear range searching
is probably not simply a special case and should be treated separately.
Oversimplifying because point, line, area, and volume don't cover: (a) curve
and (b) surface.
Overcomplicating because it appears that the geo folks may only want a crude
normalized rectangle (east bounding longitute, west bounding longitude, north
bounding latitude, and south bounding latitude). See:
