In the rendering branch I have already deprecated that cacheImage()
method: it causes various bugs with multiple map renderers in use
(they overwrite the cached image) and with threaded rendering it gets
completely wrong. I have implemented caching of map layers that is
handled by map renderers.

But there is still a problem that cached layer image does not contain
the original raster values.
