Thanks, I had the same reservation at first, because I thought of mapping
trees. If you apply spacing to a row or area it makes more sense and is in
line with general usage of the term e.g. in gardening, placing rows of
plants or trees, or orchards. Did some research on that. I'll go into this
on the wiki page. I understand that I'm supposed to create a wiki page for
the proposal. I might need some help with that, though.
