True.  That is easier as with different running/swimming speeds.
But we don't need to (in case the pathfinding would be too slow).

Now we have a problem:
Because we don't have 3 point pathfinding, a worker will see that
resource down the slope and think, "fine I'll can fetch that quickly".
Once he did that, he has to run up the slope to the building again
take more time and food than an optimal route would have taken.
Then the building asks him to get the next resource and the next ...

Pathfinding would probably be better if any sloops (whether up or
down) would be punished.  We could use the food costs and speed
changes as proposed, but only have globs dislike sloops.
Or pathfinding could ignore sloops totally.

Oh, you want each field to have a height.
That would be really nice indeed.
