    Re: Consistent "away" intercepts. Why?

    Sorry I didn't explain that very well. Suppose you have three lines of
    position forming a triangle. If the GP of all the bodies is in the
    direction away from the triangle, ie the "outward pointing normals" or
    all the opposite way, then the position is in the incentre . If
    however two are inward and one is outward, or vice versa then you get
    the excentre corresponding to the odd one out!
