Looks cool.
Are there plans to move acid maps code into the geoserver code base at 
some point?
 From a packaging and sales story, it will be much easier to install and 
use acid maps if it comes default with GeoServer.

(I'm thinking about the best way to include acid maps in OSGeoLive 
http://live.osgeo.org )
