I have one question about this. One the above page it says:

"For Map drawing: It ignores the fact that the world is, in fact, a
sphere, so it will do strange things if you are looking at stuff near
the poles or the date line. so far I don't have a need to do that, so I
havn't bothered to add any checks for that yet."

How important is this for us ?
