mod_tile would receive a request, check if a tile is already on disk, if
it is, deliver it, if it is not, hand over to tirex; tirex would add the
tile creation request to a queue, and call your engine to produce the
tile, making sure that to too many requests are executed at once and
prioritising them nicely (so you could e.g. afford a high priority to
live requests from users, and a lower priority for background refresh
The actual creation of the tile would still be done by your code,
mod_tile and tirex would just make sure that you don't have to bother
with managing your disk cache, render queues, priorities and all that.
