That might work if all you have is point data, but lines, polygons, etc,
you're typically going to want to see, just not at the same resolution..
At least, when you're talking about 'zoom-out' tiles, which is what this
was about up thread.

I'm all for supporting that and implementing this feature, I just don't
think it's going to be all that useful for zoom-out tiles when complex
geometries are involved.
