Any reason to not just use Spire?

@tixxit Not really, just that its a heavier dependency. The use case (https://github.com/benhutchison/gesture) is about pointer event handling which just needs some very simple 2D math, and already uses cats. I considered abstracting out the libraries representation of a Point to a user-provided typeclasses, but settled on (Double, Double). I decided depending on Spire might seem overkill for some users..

Oh - that looks pretty cool
and, yeah, I agree that pulling in Spire would probably be a bit overkill for now
