Thanks. I just wish it would do something :)

Yeah, that can come into our clean/dirty functionality. Change a single
tile and it'll mark the thing as dirty.

At the moment I'm not sure that we want to add events. I'm thinking that
unit movement should maybe be abstacted to a higher level than the map
drawing things, for at least the time being. The reasoning is, that if we
want things to be as generic as possible, things like moving are specific
to game types. what do you think?
