Someone on IRC asked about having blue-filled oceans in the tiles at home map 

I don't have any time to develop such a thing, but put up one idea on how it 
might be done:


e.g. a perl programmer might take our coastline-reading module, our 
slippy-map-coordinates functions, and combine them with Perl::GD to create 
the land/sea tiles.  You could even download the tiles at home server code (now 
on subversion, under "websites") to host those tiles.  If you got that far, a 
tiles at home developer might step in to help integrate it with the main tile 
rendering process...
