      Zone = playing field.

      Java has a datastructure called a Map, and since this program is written in Java, it would very quickly get confusing what we were talking about if the playing area was called a Map.

      So instead we call playing areas Zones.  We have a MapZone which uses a prerendered picture for the background, and we have an UnboundedZone which tiles a background image in a (reasonably) unbounded space.
