It was agreed in past discussions that showing tiles multiple times was
not only a problem in managing updates to all occurences, but was an
incredibly poor user interface design, and would be forbidden.

This makes your general topologies patch quite unsuitable until you 
figure out how to fix these problems.


BTW:  Your comment about this being the case for iso-rectangular map 
with any kind of wrapping is not correct. Showing tiles once only is 
always possible, and not really difficult if you do it right.
