As I mentioned before, I would strongly request print-res DPI facility
for print layouts.

Originally I was thinking for viewing higher resolution tiles or
generated images but now realize that wouldn't help since screen
resolution is 96 dpi.  But, yes, for printing purposes it could be
handy.  I guess if the option is available in the mapagent operation, it
seems like it would make sense that it would also be available directly
in the API if possible.

Are you hoping to generate rasters at higher dpi for printing purposes?

	I just ran into a case where exposing a Set DPI method to the
	MgRenderingService::RenderMap function would be very handy and
would allow
	more control by the programmer.  I hope it is a considered
addition to the
	API soon.
	Thank you.
