!> This module provides a spatial function to describe a 2D polygon.
!!
!! The spatial function will provide different values for points within the
!! polygon and those outside.
!!
!! A polygon is defined in the configuration by the following definition:
!!
!!```lua
!!   -- Vector to return inside the polygon
!!   inval = {1.0, 0.0, 2.0}
!!
!!   -- It also can be a scalar, if none is provided a scalar 1 is assumed.
!!   inval = 1.0 -- This is the value to return for points inside the polygon
!!               -- defaults to 1.
!!
!!   -- Vector to return outside the polygon
!!   outval = {0.0, 0.0, 0.0}
!!   -- Needs to conform to the definition of inval, that is, if inval is scalar
!!   -- or not given, outval needs to be a scalar.
!!   -- Defaults to all zero components for a vector of the length of inval.
!!   -- If inval is a scalar, outval has to be given as a scalar aswell:
!!   outval = 0.0 -- The value to return for points outside the polygon,
!!                -- defaults to 0.
!!
!!   -- List of 2D Points to be used as vertices for the polygon.
!!   -- The polygon will be closed by going from the last point back to the
!!   -- first one.
!!   vertex = { { 1.0,  0.0},
!!              { 0.0, -1.0},
!!              {-1.0,  0.0},
!!              { 0.0,  1.0},
!!            }
