The full-resolution coastline archive is 57 Mb.  Will it be included? (High
resolution is 12.6MB). I can see us filling a CD quickly with this.  On the
other hand, if it saves me a 57 MB download, it's very well worth it!

(This relates to my question about a month ago about adding such large bu
useful datasets to Debian main;  everyone likes to makes map right?)

Speaking as a not-yet-developer, I would be *happy* to see such geophysical
datasets that are of semi-general use added to Debian.
