As a player, I'd say YUCK! As an implementor, I'll chant "Fractals,
Fractals, Fractals!" :-)

I'm all in favour of generated terrain. I'm not in favour of it changing
randomly in a given game, for no in-game reason.

[After a 4 hour condo board meeting, I'm feeling argumentative tonight -
forgive me.]

Don't design inefficiency in - it'll happen in the implementation.
