The right solution is for me to base my Point class on your framework
because it works for me.  :^)

It seems too bad that there is no way to express in an efficient way
certain mathematical ideas, such as that two points in space have a
difference but no sum (as can be seen by the consideration of vectors
and points independent from their representation in a particular
coordinate system).

Thanks for your patience!
