Is it realistic to think on doing some sort of on-the-fly filtering of
features to generalize them depending on scale of the query?  Just a
though/question for your Paul.  Perhaps a stored function (right
terminology?) that would filter out various vertex is desired?  I was
originally thinking this would reduce the "load" at the client end but I
guess there would be a server-side processing load increase eh?
