Split SpatialLines components at offset

When recentering a world map, most often from the "Atlantic" view with longitudes with range -180 to 180, to the "pacific" view with longitudes with range 0 to 360, lines crossing the offset (0 for this conversion) get stretched horizonally. This function breaks Line objects at the offset (usually Greenwich), inserting a very small gap, and reassembling the Line objects created as Lines. A similar function for polygons is found in the spgpc package.
