    This looks good- glad you've added the Point optimizations to STIntersects, a client of ours noticed that a hand-rolled implementation of the even/odd rule seemed to be a good bit faster than the old STIntersects for testing a Point against a Polygon- but one thing I am really hoping you guys will do is to add RTree as a spatial index option.

    This is great work Ed. Thanks for keeping this document updated throughout the CTP process. I can't wait to use these features when Denali goes RTM.
