Just to sum up the problem: the whole coastline files have been updated
about half of January at release 2.0.2. Apparently that implies that
any version below 4.5.2 cannot use the new files. This is unfortunately
a problem because the upstream site does not retain the old versions.

My original idea was re-introducing ASAP the medium and hig-res coastlines,
but it poses some problems which are naturally solved by the future(?)
Debian data archiving facility.

Currently this problem will be solved by moving to 4.5.2, but it is still
a problem in Lenny or Etch, for instance where only old versions are available.
