Ongoing progress

Two more important milestones: 
First, I have map and building data net-synchronized, so the client screen map is starting to look close to the final result.
Second, I have shown the server system can handle more than one concurrent client connection!  This is still only in proofing phase, so there's lots left to do, but every step forward like this tells me I'm working with the right libraries and concepts.
