Adding just the road distance constraint -- i.e. driving time, cycling 
time and walking time -- would be a significant step up from having only a 
crow-flies distance constraint, for me.

I'd be pleasantly surprised if suitable public transport data were freely 
available (maybe buses, though?).  If not, that can wait until after the 
secret tunnels support is done.
