"Granularity", as I've come to realize, is hard to say, so I think I
prefer sub-page mapping. :) So to recap the suggestions I have so far:

1. Sub-page mapping
2. Granular mapping
3. Flexible mapping

I'll pick one of these (or maybe some other one that works better) for
the next version of this series.
