Apollonius circles function?

Hello.

I've been using Geogebra for a couple of months and it is probably the most remarkable thing that happened to me this year. My old interest in geometry resurrected and my ability to work with multi object constructions has increased almost exponentially. I've been also thinking what additional Geogebra functions I especially miss. Such functions as center (that can be applied not only to circles, but to conics as well) or circle through 3 points are extremely helpful, however it is an easy geometric construction in itself. Perhaps Apollonius circles can be added as well ? It is probably the most difficult construction on its own and few even know how to do it manually by memory. (I certainly don't ) The only problem with this function as I see is that there are 8 possible solutions and it probably should be expected to get one result per function...

Also radical center of 3 circles (it might be especially useful if there are no intersections )

I think you can add them as custom tools yourself, OK?
