[mapguide-internals] Review/Discuss: MapGuide RFC 149 (Lightweight MapGuide Source Tree)

The main motivation for this RFC is to make the MapGuide codebase more
conductive to agile development, rapid iteration and continuous integration.

It's very hard to rapidly iterate on MapGuide when you have nearly 2GB of
source code to check out and 2-3hrs build time for each build run.

So while yes, this does stunt the open-in-VS-and-compile experience for
beginners, it's a small price to pay for faster build cycles.

I'd also argue that this new build process isn't much more different than
what is currently in FDO. In FDO you had to init the build environment first
with setenvironment.[bat|sh] before you could build from the command line or
open up any FDO project in VS to build/debug. It wouldn't be that much
different here.
