Hm... I tried out this patch with a tiled map of Germany. The results
were kind of amusing: pretty much all of Germany was flooded, with the
exception of some areas around Lübeck. I suppose this is because I am
using an extract (from Geofabrik) which cuts off coastline at the
country border.

Creating automatic sea polygons which will work in practice appears to
be a rather non-trivial problem.

Cheers and thanks for your work on this.
