Of course, these restrictions is the main reason for using slippymap plugin
functionality instead of WMS proxy. Great performace is just a bonus.
However, slippymap plugin is initially designed to show map tiles, not the
aerial imagery, therefore so radical solution as merging two plugins into
one is needed.
