[mkgmap-dev] How to create a map covering Fiji & Samoa?

I have no idea how to answer your question, but I was wondering if it is 
really connected to the IDL or the 180-degree longitude? Of course 
179.99 East is separated from 179.99 West by only 0.02 degrees, not 
359.98. I can imagine how this would need some special handling. The IDL 
wanders around quite a bit, roughly centred on 180. If the issue really 
is connected to the IDL, I would love to learn how!
