I wanted to try and use a web interface but maintaining state is such a headache. Perl/Tk is
pretty easy (already have much of the interface done) and will run just about anywhere.
As for editors, I'm not aware of any. OpenMap may be a possibility http://openmap.bbn.com/
but I've not used it. MapScript can certainly be used for writing and reading shapefiles if
someone could put together a client...

Sounds like a useful tool. I'd definitely be interested. I've really gotten behind on the latest MapServer developments. I like using PHP w/ MySql for database stuff, so I've got to check out the PHP/MapScript stuff.
On a similar thread...Are there any free (preferably open source) graphic shapefile create/edit tools available? This would be excellent for small projects. I'd considered at one time diving into shapelib and trying to build a simple viewer/editor myself, but I haven't made the time.
Do you do Linux? :)
