Take a look at JXMapViewer and its TileFactory. There is already a WMS
tile factory and it also works directly with Googles map thing (I think
there are legal issues with this however). Combining it with the raster
reprojection/scaling facilities off GDAL should make it possible to make
an OM layer without doing to much work.
