Wow, seems fun... In substance I have to junk wxPoint to use some kind of
equivalent double point...

This should give no troubles since in fact all the output drivers, except HPGL, have to export in floating point anyway...

Do we already have some kind of point with double members to use? maybe some kind of magic boost class?:P

Two kind of point using doubles:
the first is wxRealPoint, the floating version of wxPoint.
the second is a new class: DPOINT defined in vector2d.h, very recently created by Dick.
DPOINT is a powerful class.
