Hello dev team,

I about to dive into some funded work to create a MapServer 
'downloadable user's manual', to be in pdf format.  I am thinking of 
making a glossy version of the great work already done by David Fawcett 
and Perry in the New Users manual and the MapServer 5.0 Tutorial 
respectively, and of course pointing to the existing howtos/references. 
   Below are some topics for the table of contents, please let me know 
if you think something is missing or if I should change my focus.
