The curve effect annoy me for some octagonal pieces of water. Dropping 
it for angle > 44° will satisfy me. (but not the person mapping a 
decagonal feature)



In the second example, the park corners are again 45° angles that should 
not have been curvified.
And another curve problem : The water piece on the east is a perfect 
target for the curving algorithm : It's a circle. But one of the segment 
is drawn straight.
