Ok, if you say so. I don't really mind at all, it's just that I don't come from
a collision detection background and that definition of a plane doesn't work
well with the definition of a plane I have in mind.

I can see how that would be useful, but I think there would be another way of
defining convex hulls without restricting the use of planes for that special
Just one thing: If what's "below" the plane will be considered as colliding in
the future, I think that should be made blatantly obvious in the documentation.
It's something that's not obvious for someone who doesn't come from a collision
detection background, IMVHO.
