TRI0 creates a constrained triangulation using 'ear-cutting', or 'ear-clipping' of
polygons. It is a 'structural' form, a denser storage mode than 'relational'
as used by `TRI()`

, we trade some generality for size and speed.

TRI0 is suitable for simple conversion to other mesh forms. See the examples for plotting and (in commented code) conversion to rgl's 'mesh3d'.

'Structural' means that the model does not store relational
IDs between tables, the vertex indexing is stored as a nested
list of data frames in the 'object' table. Unlike `TRI()`

we
cannot arbitrarily rearrange the order or remove content
of the underlying tables, without updating the vertex indexes
stored for each object.

Ear-cutting is inherently path-based, so this model is only available for
path-based structures, like simple features, `PATH()`

, `PATH0()`

and `ARC()`

.

There is limited support for simple features GEOMETRYCOLLECTION, in short if the GC is composed purely of POLYGON type with 4 coordinates each this is assumed to be a collection of triangles and is converted directly without any triangulation performed. GEOMETRYCOLLECTION of any other form is not supported.
