We'll my influences are far and wide, and not specific to any
particular publications.  In terms of prior art, well there is lots
and very little.  VPB scales to multi-terabyte database generation,
not too much prior art in this area that has been published as far as
I'm aware so this side of things is basically just stuff I came up
with on my own.  While paged databases and the terrain rendering are
two a penny, there isn't any rocket science here on the OSG side -
there is an OSG twist on things but really not anything particularly
