Nice stuff.

I did some work on this stuff a few months back - but I found that
something about mobile safari's renderer is really slow. Its not
hardware accelerating tile resizes or something.

I ended up doing a from-scratch rewrite of openlayers in objective-c:

There may well be a way to get native performance out of a javascript
library - I'm not sure. The bottleneck is just the renderer as far as
I can tell.
