    Description

      Working with Polygon is a bit tricky today because you typically
      must use an external dependency to convert e.g. a GeoJSON string into
      Lucene's Polygon class ... I think this is a weakness in our API, and
      it clearly confuses users: http://markmail.org/thread/mpge4wqo7cfqm4i5

      So I created a simplistic GeoJSON parser to extract a single Polygon
      or MultiPolygon from a GeoJSON string, without any dependencies. The
      parser only handles the various ways that a single Polygon or
      MultiPolygon can appear in a GeoJSON string, and throws an exception
      otherwise.
