Tod, I agree with the idea but mindful of Warin's advice, more things on
the page, less chance of getting it approved. Incidently, AU we'd say
'site', the overall area would be a campground (but too late, its
already called camp_site).

I don't know if I, personally, would ever bother to map a campground
down to individual sites (or pitches as you would say). But campground
owners sure would and it would be useful indeed. I'd vote for them.

Maybe we should try and do parallel development of these things, bring
up a proposal for -

1. Overall campground, titled "additions to tourism=camp_site"

2. Site specific additions, "pitch specific additions to

3. Warin's kitchen specific ones.

We could prepare and discuss as a set but keep voting separate so we
don't get a few negative votes killing whole thing ?
