Well, even on a round Earth, you're not really tracing a straight line when you go east, you're traveling in a circle. So it all seems like kind of a moot point.It's hardly a moot point from your position because the straight lines paths due east in the southern hemisphere in reality trend northward rather than southward.
See, east and west trace circles around the north pole while north and south trace circles that go through the north pole. So the cardinal directions are as follows: North is Hubwards, South is Rimwards, East is Turnwise, and West is Widdershins.
