A geometry is the spatial representation of a feature.
Since QGIS 2.10, QgsGeometry acts as a generic container for geometry objects. QgsGeometry is implicitly shared, so making copies of geometries is inexpensive. The geometry container class can also be stored inside a QVariant object.
The actual geometry representation is stored as a QgsAbstractGeometryV2 within the container, and can be accessed via the geometry method or set using the setGeometry method.

bool QgsGeometry::deleteVertex  (  int  atVertex  ) 
Deletes the vertex at the given position number and item (first number is index 0) Returns false if atVertex does not correspond to a valid vertex on this geometry (including if this geometry is a Point), or if the number of remaining verticies in the linestring would be less than two.
It is up to the caller to distinguish between these error conditions. (Or maybe we add another method to this object to help make the distinction?)
