That statement was made 50 years ago. I wonder what the practice is now. Shark, or one of our French associates, might give us an insight.

It was actually. If I remember rightly it was on the BBC program 'Panorama'
By the way, the jokey 8 bit Google Maps implementation was put up on the site before April 1st -- My son pointed me to it last night. Even the Streetview facility is available in 8 bit graphics -- it was weird seeing my house and car in glorious 8 bit colour!
Edit: Oops! I was forgetting that the International Dateline was the opposite side of the world to the UK and the Greenwich Meridian! -- Big mistake when dealing with international April Fool pranksters!
