1) Grab the geotiffs

4) stick them somewhere public
Now it would be awesome if mapwarper could warp straight to 900913,
since that would save another warping. And I'm only using mapnik since
it's the hammer I have to hand for combining multiple rasters and
spitting out tiles. YMMV.
Anyway, on the wider topic I believe individual warping is the best
approach, and it would be nice to rank images on their "verticalness"
so that I can stack them up with the most vertical ones visible on top
and the most oblique ones where there isn't any better alternative.
