I think that would be pretty cool! We've got a 70 meg tiled TIFF with
overviews of Landsat-7 for greater London that we can supply, either
directly or through our WMS.  MapServer handles reading the overviews
from the TIFF for us, which is super fast on the server side, and WMS
requests are basically a simple HTTP GET request, so that's one
option, but I'm totally happy to offer the TIFF image for download to
anyone who wants to play with it.
