I did some user testing with Python 3.8 and found that math.dist() was a little restrictive in only accepting coordinates as tuples.  Mostly it worked out fine except but was a little inconvenient with generalized unpacking:

   label, *coordinates = cursor.fetchone()  # coordinates is a list

Also, it would be nice to allow numpy arrays as arguments.
