Some notes about the tilesource scale updates. @1x devices and single-scale providers are getting rare, hence the changes.

Include scale in all tile source names, including @1x
This also means that if you have a symlinked cache shared across map apps or a precious huge archive of tiles, you might need to manually rename your directory or symlink. e.g. OpenStreetMap tiles used to be cached under ~/.cache/harbour-poor-maps/openstreetmap, but are now under ~/.cache/harbour-poor-maps/openstreetmap_@1x. I didn't add any migration for this, but any possible cache expiration and tile purging applies to obsolete directories as well.

Add scale filters to a pulldown menu in the basemap page
If you have configured additional tile sources of your own (under ~/.local/share/harbour-poor-maps/tilesources), note that the new filtering is based on tile source names (not the scale field!), so you might want to add @1x or @2x to the names of your tile sources.
