Steve, Daniel, I encourage you to voice your opinions on the mapguide  
internals list ... the more the better.  I would love to see some  
collaboration between mapguide and mapserver at this level.  It seems  
like easy common ground to get started talking together.

In particular, I think mapserver could benefit from Traian's  
modifications for rendering into a different buffer to solve the  
alpha problems and for the rendering on transparent background thing.
