I clearly appreciate the work you put in this, but I think naming should 
aim the use by users not the difficulty for developers to implement the 
functionality ;-)

I don't want to launch a long discussion on this, and you're the 
developer, but your great work has already got me dreaming about other 
functionalities that might be nice to have in there:

- a query tool that when you click on a spot in one of the maps gives 
you the info for both

- allow to display vector maps, not only raster (including one of each)

- a button that launches Michael's new histogram tool to directly show 
the histograms of the two maps

- etc

Well, hey, it's Christmas, soon ! ;-)
