Changes in 3.0.0

   These are mostly ABI breaking changes.
   In few cases the API also changed, but the most external one
   (the documented one) should be unchanged.

	- Stronger methods typing (removed some void * args).
	- Changed index-related funx signatures to use size_t
	  rather then int
	- More const-correctness in Buffer "package"

	  and then link all subsystem's libs togheter

	  given the enum a name (OpCode) for type-safety.

	  result of overlaying polygons containing touching holes (#13)
