I have been working on writing a substitution for the aging coastcheck program.
It is not finished yet, but maybe somebody wants to play around with it.

It takes not even 20 minutes to extract all coastline data from a planet file
and create polygons from it. That's at least an order of magnitude faster than
coastcheck does it.
