More than one city field for larger cities

What would you like to see in Freeciv? Do you have a good idea what should be improved or how?

It's not something I'm likely to be implementing myself, but I'm not rejecting patches to implement it either, if:
1) It's optional feature (probably ruleset controlled)
2) Clean implementation (easy to maintain, does not make future development of other features unnecessary hard)
3) Does not break any other features

Hey everyone. I think the merging idea is a bit too complicated to implement, but I fully support the idea of larger urban areas (though this should be controlled with a max size of about 9 tiles). It's always bothered me that a size 2 village takes up the same amount of space as a size 12 city, and while population density can explain some of this discrepancy, I firmly believe this would be a great option for Freeciv to support.
