Comment (by mlennert):

 Replying to [comment:2 neteler]:
 > A wish - the current manual change proposal (maybe remove "very"):

 are ~~very~~ many different category values across the patched maps. The
 <em>-s</em> flag allows to disable support file creation."

 Done in the new version of the diff.

 other modules still accept such maps? Anything specific which will no
 longer work and how to work-around?

 AFAIK, the only difference is that no category labels or color tables from
 the original maps are kept, but this will not cause any issues for other

 I enhanced the explanation in the patch.
