Dear OSGeo,

I would like to launch the idea of an "OSGeo Cartographic Library" to
share concepts, source code and regression tests:


GRASS, QGIS and others are in the need of own map printing tools
for high quality output but these projects should not start from scratch.
There is a wealth of underlying code already in Mapserver, Mapguide etc
which could be re-used in the terms of their respective licenses and
certainly of programming language compatibility.

Please hack the wiki page and post your ideas.
