Thanks Marko for the initiative.

IMHO another must-fix for 2.2 first beta is some kind of update to the
default tilesets. William's new terrain rules have outdated all 2.1
tilesets. "Wooded hills" provide different resources from "verdant hills",
for example, but use the same sprite and often exist in the same general
area. If we release a beta without doing anything about this, I can
promise it'll generate alot of negative buzz among veteran users.
For starters, I will make ugly-but-usable tweaks to the current default
tilesets, while trying to recruit the services of our artist community.

Is it really necessary to branch 2.3 already? Can't we just work on trunk
until the next feature freeze?
