+PLUGIN [filename]
+    Additional library to load by MapServer, for this layer.  This is commonly
+    used to load specific support for SDE and Microsoft SQL Server layers, 
+    such as:
+      .. code-block:: mapfile
+        CONNECTION "hostname,port:xxx,database,username,password"

 POSTLABELCACHE [true|false]
     Tells MapServer to render this layer after all labels in the cache have 
     been drawn. Useful for adding neatlines and similar elements.
