I read http://ol-performance.appspot.com with a lot of interest,
especially the client side grouping. However, it occurs to me that when
you open a "Layer" object in OL, the object has both client side config
options (eg displayinLayerSwitcher) and server side (URL). You cant
exactly group client side if the layers have different client-side
config options. Would it be possible to have OL do the grouping behind
the scenes? Ie if layers have same server characteristics, then group
them so that the tile request to the server has all the appropriate layers?
