I'm not sure this is a good idea, or put another way - it would be good
to have a slippy map display capacity in WMS quality, but the slippy map
plugin is intended more as a kind of "tiles at home helper", showing the
tile boundaries and allowing you to request and display tile metadata or
request tile updates. As such, it is supposed to actually expose tile
details - whereas the WMS layer is expected to hide them in order to
provide a seamless background.
Perhaps we should have a slippy map display layer in the WMS plugin (and
subsequently rename it "background image plugin"), and leave the grid
and tile status/update stuff in the existing slippy map plugin (and
rename it "tiles at home plugin" or so).
