> The current tile based system in Lucene is broken.  We should standardize on a common
way of labeling grids and provide that as an option.  Based on previous conversations with
Ryan McKinley and Chris Male, it seems the Military Grid Reference System (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_grid_reference_system)
is a good candidate for the replacement due to its standard use of metric tiles of increasing
orders of magnitude (1, 10, 100, 1000, etc.)
