Welcome. This has been a popular topic on the list lately. In short:
between our early releases of the PB2.x branch and now, Google made
their mapping API an official release. Applications that use it now
need a key from Google, but we haven't figured out a way to either
release with a key in a scalable fashion or make PB change up its URLs
in such a way that every user could enter their own personal key.

I propose one method is to change all URLs from /piggy-bank/[model] to
/piggy-bank/[hash of user's email]/[model]. Thoughts?
