I was speaking to Per about this one actually. He seemed quite certain that the current way we do it is better than doing it at run time. I believe we do it for runtime with map tile sets, and it does seemed to have increase load time somewhat. I am not so sure about the caching, however. What does everyone else think?

I think Per is currently working on something to do with the PIE format, so I urge you to make a post about it directly.
