I would like to be able to create a square box polygon around a single geography point.

Given a geography point, I would like to be able to use a function to say "create a polygon, with the geography point in the center, and the sides of the box are 10 km long".

I know this can be done using STBuffer to create a circle with the geography point at the center and the radius is 10 km.

I'd like to be able to do the same thing, but for a square instead of a circle.
