Most zoomable maps I've used only show things like major roads at large
scales, gradually bringing in lesser details and fiddly bits at small
eg. start with
then everything else.
increasing the cache period per tile based on area covered should be
easy enough, should we need to ease the load on the database and tile
getting the way colouring working again is a prerequisite for any of this.
