You are pretty much correct, the load procedure will reduce the vertex count
by the specified percentage. How it does the generalization I have no idea.
Though I believe that number is the percentage you want to reduce, not the
total percentage you are after. So if you had 5 points along the line, 20%
generalization would remove 1 point on that line.
