Hey Max,

I would definitely release with using Google Maps API only. Actually, I
could go so far as to support Yahoo & MapQuest API's as well and have
widget parameters that can select the API service to use. I'm assuming
when you talk about having the choice of nation/region/street you mean
geocode quality. I wasn't aware that you could select a geocode quality
to use with Google's API, I do know that when it returns the result is
returns also the geocode quality that is used. As soon as I can I'll
work on generalizing the widget a bit more and throw it out there for
people to try. I'm wondering where the best place is to put up the
widget. It would be nice if there was a Widget repository somewhere that
people could use to share widgets that they've developed.
