kind of, yes the API changed, but Canonical had a premium subscription
allowing them to do Google maps over https this expired about a year ago
and mysteriously kept on working. Apparently it is rather expensive to
renew the https deal and as launchpad is always https and not http (for
reasons that escape me) they can't use the free API.
We totally can incorporate our own Google maps thingamagig. Would be
nice to do Open Street Map, I think we will go for whichever one that
someone wants to actually knuckle down and do.
