That sounds useful.  I'd take a patch that adds that as a sysdef
controlled feature.  PARADISE_SC_PLANET_VIEW perhaps?

But Paradise keeps everything on the same galactic, right?  If we ever
need exploration of an area larger than the galactic, the server could
keep an internal set of coordinates for objects, and give a limited
galactic view by providing only some objects with an offset.  Then it
would work with older clients.
