A vector is a sequential collection of items. A polygon is a sequential 
collection of points. So a polygon can be a vector of points.

But I don't think that it should inherit, since some of the operations that 
you can do in a vector don't really apply to a polygon. That's unlike QString/
QStringView where all operations apply, even if we have an override that 
returns something differently.
