> For some applications it is sometimes interesting to be able to
create square buffers around points. So my question to those who know
the GEOS code best: How difficult would it be to change v.buffer to be
able to do this ?
Buffers around points are trivial, and square buffers around points
would be even more trivial. This could be triggered by the already
existing -s flag (square caps at end of lines, outside corners straight).
Please create a ticket for square buffers around points such that this
request does not get forgotten.
Done  already with an attempt at a (very simple) patch. Would be
great if you could have a look.
