 There is a demand for defining a further constant in mapbender.conf. This
 constant should be a path to a script, that wraps the mapbender
 index.php/login.php. In many circumstances the login.php file may not be
 directly available - maybe mapbender will be be integrated in another cms
 like typo3. To invoke e.g. the Get-Api (http://www.mapbender.org/GET-
 Parameter) of mapbender, another url is used, which will be the url to the
 wrapper script. This script will be used if the constant WRAPPER_URL is
 not empty. Example for mapbender.conf:

 # --------------------------------------------[[BR]]
 # define a wrapper for index.php/login.php to use e.g. the get api when
 integrated in external applications like cms[[BR]]
 # --------------------------------------------[[BR]]

 This constant maybe used from the metadata module to invoke the defined
 client (maybe another mapbender installation) from there! The metadata
 module will send e.g. the layer_id to the Get Api of the script behind
 this url.
 Further: If you find a metadata url from mapbenders metadata module by
 google search, there is a link which will directly call the client (or
