Wrong conclusion. The current code depends on two plib functions
being virtual, which they aren't. So the easiest fix was to make
them virtual. But, of course, one can change the fgfs parts to work
without that.

If terrasync would then download the respective terrain before fgfs
puts you there, then yes. But this isn't the case, so it's pointless
for now. You end up in sea either way.
