Well obviously now that I've seen it live it's not as bad as I thought 
it might be - as I said it would depend on exactly when leaflet triggers 
that event.

My thought was more that you might have to explicitly activate this 
functionality in some way rather than just having it on all the time.

One idea for example might be to have it as a "layer" that you could 
activate in the layer switcher - it might even open the sidebar with 
some text explaining to click on the map to view details and then show 
the details in the sidebar rather than a popup.

Not saying we should do it that way, just that we should discuss the 
best way for it to work before getting into specific code reviews.

Yes I think that would be unacceptable really - somebody on talk has 
already commented on it.
