Well, actually I can make it to handle any first character in the
/maps/<character> URL. That's not a problem. And there is per-letter
pagination, as you get for the full list of maps.

But my inquiry was more about the list of letters to display. We could
use ranges there as you suggest, like:

All - 0-9 - A-C - D-É - F-K - ... But if these ranges change, it might
confuse people, so I don't know.
