I am concerned by the fact that the new tileindex object would break 
existing mapfiles.  Could we stick to shapefile tileindexes for this 
release for now, since we don't have much time anyway, and perhaps in a 
later release we could move a tileindex object and support tile indexes 
in any format?

I suppose the main drawback of this approach would be that we would have 
to create TILEFILTER/TILEFILTERITEM which would have to be deprecated 
later when we create the tileindex object.

I dunno.... I think we should try to avoid breaking older mapfiles 
unless we really have to... that's always a pain for users to upgrade 
when we break the mapfile format.
