Those are about the minimum useful ones I think.  The 1:250k ones
are totally useless as far as I'm concerned.  The 1:24k (7.5 minute)
maps are the most useful (to me anyway), but are also excessively
large.

Having anything out there on a separate server, where we could
collect the entire country in one place, is better than having
nothing.  Perhaps later we could start to collect the 1:24k maps as
well, as file space and download pipes allow.
