They're trying (sort of): http://code.google.com/closure/library/

Here's a talk once about their process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=697KX4Ciiws#t=02m40s

P.S. Anyone know an easy Maps API trick for setting zoom level to display each of the U.S. states (which vary dramatically in size)?

I'm not familiar with the Maps API, but the site does it for you:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&... (from searching Texas)

Doh! On second thought, actually think I tried that, but was unhappy with the results.

Try using the fitBounds method to set the map to a LatLngBounds object.
