      Description

      The current tile based system in Lucene is broken. We should standardize on a common way of labeling grids and provide that as an option. Based on previous conversations with Ryan McKinley and Chris Male, it seems the Military Grid Reference System (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_grid_reference_system) is a good candidate for the replacement due to its standard use of metric tiles of increasing orders of magnitude (1, 10, 100, 1000, etc.)
