Why should there be a limit like that? In Russia, they have built canals
which, via rivers, connect the Baltic Sea with the Black Sea.
But you might say they should be "expensive" to build, meaning an engineer
should need some turns to finish one square of canal. And it should of
course be easier to extend a river's depth than building a canal :)
