Hmmm, are the items really of that much interest to a user?  I mean,
would someone really want to look at all 150,000 tiles (or whatever)
one-by-one?  I would guess not, in which case it would probably make
sense to just have an item that says "150,000 tiles."

Well, it is interesting if you have few of them, to see how the protocol really works. I guess I should stop adding them at some point... first 100 or so? if it's smaller than a packet size?
Nevertheless, one might want to find oddities in the protocol implementation, and then he will need all of the data.
