Hi There,

 We just realized the output formats are not written into the map file 
when It is saved. I realize that saving the imagetype is enough (to 
recreate the same mapfile) for default output formats, but we end up 
loosing some specific user defined format options.
  I guess there are several ways to adress this :

   - write only the current output format used in the map file
   - write all the output formats
   - write back only output formats that are user defined (loaded from 
map file or create by mapscript) . In trhis case we would also write 
current one if diffrent from the user defined.

 Maybe there are other ways. What are your take on this ?
