You may want to test Mapserver also with other resampling methods. At least these are supported

Answering my own question in part, I rendered the same tile with mapproxy
doing the reprojection and mapserver doing the reprojection.

The live view can be found at

The two renderings are

The mapproxy reprojection is smoother, perhaps because the image is scaled
from the original when requested by mapserver then reprojected by mapproxy.

The mapserver reprojection is crisper but there are more jagged parts.

I have a lanczos result from gdal2tiles, but it's on an unattached external
drive right now. Lanczos is of course much more computationally expensive.
