I noticed that Marble shows the map right up to the poles.  These are
not covered by Mercator maps.  So I suspect Marble stretches the map a
little bit leading to some inaccuracies like water reaching almost
directly up to the south pole.

It would be more accurate if Marble did not stretch the map and
instead allowed a fill color or image to be specified for each pole.
Or is this already possible?
