If you guys haven't seen Venkman debugger, I highly recommend it. It's
a full-scale debugger for javascript applications on Firefox.

Also, as to the overlay stuff, it's working quite well for me, I'm
surprised you consider it beta code. Is there any progress on 'real'
means of creating and drawing overlays?

Of course, my sample size is only one windows machine and one linux
machine, testing firefox, IE v5 and IE v6, and konqueror, so if it's
not working on those combinations, I'd be unaware.

Anyway, my major problem with the overlays was not that they were
unworkable, but rather it was nearly impossible to cache the returned
XML from the server.

I solved cacheing by passing my XML extents ceil and floored to the
nearest degree and setting cache control on the XML (since we're using
largely static data, one hit should be enough).

This I also did for the polygon generation, although rounding was much
less useful there, since we are rendering polygons on the centerpoint
and so of course you don't want to round the centerpoint of a 200,000
to one scale map very far.

Thanks for your input
