Hi Bruce,

good points, the updatelayers command is not updating the title, this is
the code called
need some refactor here to make it respect all the changes. The title is
updated if changed from the layer's metadata page though.

About the maplayers, there's no code that updates the layer_params and
would be good to enhance the updatemaplayer_ip command
to do all the necessary tasks so to be a more generic updatemaplayer.

If you can provide PRs on that would be awesome, can you fill a couple of
tickets in github? there's already one for updatelayers
