Distorted text following path

As an old civil engineer, always had an interest in maps. Just had to pull up a UK OS map to see how they do it. Must have the same problem, not curved. Although in other names there is a change of direction between words. 

Just a very simple example of text on poligonal/smooth paths.
- 3 Left--Gimp default
- Smooth, right--ofn-text-along-path
Of course, this is made on a large scale (text at 69px)--when working with text at 12px-20px, AND a meandering river, adjustment is 'some fun'...

Note: Trouble with paths is, they are 'piecewise smooth' curves--and usually the issues arise at the joints between the 'pieces'.
