Thanks Rolf, it's actually  not what I meant and I appreciate the
clarification :) - owin is clear in its definition of specific types, but
spatstat types generally do allow combinations of domain, discretization,
and path-based boundaries. So I hope I'm not wrong about *that*.

(I aspire to be more expert on this cross-over topic, still working on it :)

Cheers, Mike.
