ST_Simplify in the PostGIS driver for performance

Description

By wrapping the geometry column in the SQL generated by the driver in an "appropriate" call to ST_Simplify, rendering can be sped up by avoiding pushing un-needed data through the pipes to GeoServer. This approach has been tested on MapNik and seen 75% increases in speed for complex inputs. The "appropriate" call will need to figure out a simplification parameter based on the size and bounds of the output image being generated.
