I added this method for drawing polygons with lots of points on google maps. Also, it can more sense to use this when doing spatial queries where the exact boundary of your polygon doesn't matter too much.

No convincing argument supplied, so I'm going to wontfix this. Further, when I get around to implementing lazy-instantiation is this will no longer be necessary.
