The other formats that use irregular tile placements (MIRAX, Trestle,
Ventana) record both a tile's actual pixel coordinates and its idealized
placement on a regular grid. This allows the tilemap grid to do a "poor
man's range search", using the ideal position as a starting point for a
limited brute-force search.
If CZI only records the pixel coordinates of each tile, we've reached
the third option in my previous email. I don't think it's worthwhile
trying to cleverly compute idealized tile advances (as Mathieu proposed
on StackExchange) just so you can use the tilemap grid.
