Another service.


US only.  Zip driven, so less precision.   OK for our purposes, esp. if 
not zooming in.

Could code to check multiple services on failure.

Might look for international service w/ at least per-country precision. 
Of course we could just futz up our own lookup table for this.

For privacy, we might want to set an opt-in/opt-out flag.  If we're 
aggregating w/o zoom, opt-out might be OK.

Might also think about letting users enter their own lat/long coords. 
This could be good for internationals not covered by these services. 
Good also for goofballs who'd like us to think they live in Antarctica...
