Such a dirty-tiles list could be used in tile-expiring on the render
servers as well. The current solutions to this have the same problem as
the history tab: a change to the german border triggers the whole german
country to be marked as dirty, because they're inside of the relations.
Such an algorithem would be very useful on all rendering stacks -- and
it's also a not so easy task (because of various reasons that don't need
to be mentioned here ;)
