Can we not ask Nominatim to return the admin level(s) along with the
result set? i.e. 'Here's the bounding polygon for Oslo, and this is
its admin level; or even better, here's the place id'. Then where
you'd normally call OcitySMap with the city name, you'd call it with
the place id.



p.s. I've been rather busy of late, hence my absence on IRC and the
list. I'll manage to tackle the Dutch translation update this week,
