Last public post on this toy, I promise.
Some people thought it might be useful so it's here now:
http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/viewer/pymap

I haven't tested how well it performs (Simplicity was the first goal),
but it will certainly be better than a crappy wlan. It would also be
trivial to make it update old local tiles on demand.

I agree that this would be ideal to showcase OSM maps e.g. at
conferences where WLAN is existent but horrible.
