Fast 2D convex hull

SciPy 2020 sprint project on scikit-image for a faster 2D convex hull algorithm.

During the SciPy 2020 conference (held virtually that year), I was digging through the project improvement proposals and found a suggestion for a faster convex hull algorithm. A bit more digging uncovered a submission to fulfil this proposal, but it had not been accepted due to a bug. During the rest of the sprint I debugged how the error in question had arisen, and proposed a fix in a new pull request.

WIP/review underway
