"n miles from me" becomes less helpful in London at 5 or 10 miles or so, 
because travel time depends on direction as well as distance.  I guess the 
situation is similar elsewhere.

I imagine there are services out there that provide geospatially indexed 
travel time.  It wouldn't have to be very accurate to be useful for this.
