Sounds good! :}

I looked through there, and gave some of it a try.  Aside from the small 
problem of creating
the maps (easy enough to make a utility to do that), the maps are all 8 
bit, i.e, grayscale.  This
is not what I had in mind... :}   It did look like the generic concept 
will work, if it's possible
to change that...

  It looks like you have a grayscale map, and then use tiles of a 
particular type to fill in the color
and details.  While this is fine for a map, using it as an image doesn't 
work...   because the color
is in the image, not tiles. :}

  How hard do you think it would be to increase the data from 8 to 24 
(or even 30) bit?  So I can
use a full color image (and of course, use full saturation)?
