[Therion] grid lines

Maybe a straight forward approach is to adopt gridlines spaced at 1km, and
label them in the usual way using standard Therion statements.

Then add to the metapost example on the wiki (which draws continuous lines),
to add small crosses at 0.1x grid spacing (0.1x xsize and 0.1x ysize).

Not exactly sure how it will turn out around the edges, but worth a try.

I'll leave the actual coding to someone who is proficient at metapost.

Been trying to get my grid looking good. I find the default crosses for my
standard 100m grid about twice the size I would like. 

Secondly, I would then like the kilometre grid lines to be continuous like
the code from Stacho and Bruce, but still with the 100m small crosses.

Finally to label just the kilometre grid at its intersections but not the
100m crosses


Has anyone got any meta code to help with any section of this request.
