Re: improving the performance of geometries, I've actually been working on a WKB-instead-of-GeoJSON interface this week.

https://github.com/Toblerity/Fiona/pull/741

Internally the exportToGEOS function is doing the same thing: converting to WKB then parsing in GEOS.

https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/blob/0c80e420aa00e9bdd0acbb05ab4148841a75d9ca/gdal/ogr/ogrgeometry.cpp#L2932

I think that exposing the WKB is actually more useful as it doesn't create a hard dependency to Shapely/GEOS.
