Allow to use a projection which doesn't squeeze the map horizontally, to make vector map compatible with raster maps with a typical projection.

    Example map - Finnish border outline by vector map on top of background raster map

    Example map in attached file (raster from National Land Survey of Finland 6/2012) shows how much the map is squeezed in the north by GpsMid (the outline country border drawn from vector data from OSM by GpsMid).

    GpsMid changes the stretch/squeeze of the map when panning the map in north/south direction.

    Sorry, writing escaped when attaching the file; should be for a projection "which doesn't squeeze the map in the vertical, north-south direction"
