Right now they are 5px, but that decision was completely arbitrary.
8px will be fine. Although how much would that be in "real life"
measure? I assume the 96px is about 2m. So if I did my math right, 8px
is about 16.66cm. Seems okay to me.

Sounds good.

Good. From what I experienced, that makes it much more easy to align
any possible structure to standard floor tiles.

That was fast. Let me know when you run into trouble. Should be around
on IRC a bit later tonight.
