JXG.Math.Geometry.meetCurveRedBlueSegments(red, blue, nr)
Find the nth intersection point of two curves named red (first parameter) and blue (second parameter).
We go through each segment of the red curve and search if there is an intersection with a segment of the blue curve.
This double loop, i.e. the outer loop runs along the red curve and the inner loop runs along the blue curve, defines
the nth intersection point. The segments are either line segments or Bezier curves of degree 3. This depends on
the property bezierDegree of the curves.
This method works also for transformed curves, since only the already transformed points are used.
