I like it - being able to "peer into" the data like this should
encourage people to delve a little deeper, and eventually become
mappers. It's a handy tool for existing mappers, too, not least the
easy access to history information.
There's still a little bit of presentational work to do on it (I'd
like to have a couple of spare hours to play with the code and just
play with moving things hither and thither), but then isn't that
always the way?
