Maybe the tile viewer project could be segmented in a way that it could be spread over multiple volunteer developer tranches. Quim, what do you think?

That's not going to happen.

Commons currently uses tool labs for this (See the interactive large
image viewer like, on e.g.,_Elevated,_and_Dewey_Square.jpg
). I'm sure this would be a cool feature for media viewer. I doubt its
going to happen in the near future based on current priorities
(Obviously, its open source, so anyone could submit a patch. Maybe it
would make a cool gsoc project to have a tile viewer in media viewer,
albeit that's kind of on the large size for a gsoc project.
