Actually, dealing with "the legend", or the contents
of the entire map collar, is non-trivial, however, a
library that can render the content within a map's
neat line has all the tools necessary to be able to
render the map's collar. The difference may be that
there would need to be some additional functionality,
or different methods of calling the same underlying
functionality, in order to make the tasks involved
in composing the collar easy.
