With the view distance set to max I can see a land mass off in the distance. So its not as though you are completely stranded, and if you decide to build out there somewhere, dieing would be a major *****, but I just might go grab a sapling and a block of soil and attempt to live on this island.
Just before you posted this, I did edit my original post saying I did see a small landmass over in the distance, but there's no point going there.
I am making my base now. I'll upload pics when I'm done.

You should really dig in the center of the spawn.. in a 3x3 square, down about 20 or so blocks. this cave system is GIGANTIC. I have found so much coal, iron and gold it's not funny, plus it has such a huge lava pool at the bottom. Epic spawn is indeed epic.
I love that the game is capable of generating something like this. Most of the time I have trouble finding water in my worlds, and here you almost can't see land. Think I'll play around with this world a bit, thanks for posting!
An oddity I have found with most of the other landmasses around the spawn, they ALL float 1 block above the water, its freaking weird yo. Well meabye not every little bit of them, but it's still weird.
