Summary description: Spherical Mercator coordinate systems and Web Mercator tile integration

Announcement text:

- New options
  '/mermap/supply/area from marker input' and
  '/mermap/supply/add area from marker input'
  which allow to fit a map to a given external list of marker positions.
- New option '/mermap/fail on missing resource' to control
  compilation behavior for missing resource files.
- Openrouteservice has discontinued mapsurfer tiles since June 2020.
  Therefore, '/mermap/supply/source=openrouteservice mapsurfer'
  is deprecated now. It is not documented any more, but
  for some time it is still available for old documents with
  cached map tiles.
- (#2) New marker option '/mermap/marker/distance' with corresponding
  macro '\mrcmarkerdistance'.
