Visvalingam line generalization function
|Reported by:||strk||Owned by:||nicklas|
The algorithm is known allowing "tagging" vertices with their importance and thus allowing run-time simplification by only looking at the tags. For this reason I envision a tag-only function and a trim-by-tag one. Both would be useful.
