Very valid point.
All I was really going for was a popup on select, so for me id probably
try to tie cursor position into it.
Perhaps that's more like a vector tooltip?

So, when you have a multipolygon of Alaska -- the aluetians on the
right, and the main body on the left -- where does the popup go? 

getBounds().getCenterLonLat() puts it just north of London.
