[mapserver-dev] New demo proposal...

Hi all: I'm working on a new demo or more accurately a series of demos. My thought is to extend the 
DNR test suite concept which attempts to show off functionality and configuration through a series of
focused examples as opposed to a single monolithic demo. The demos would be organized topically
(labeling, cartography, data formats, etc...) and could be added to over time. A couple of other projects
I checked out use similar strategies. All examples would have browsable mapfiles etc... and a choice
few could be downloadable individually in an archive format.

This could easily be expanded to as necessary and could serve as live examples for tutorials, the 
downloadable manual Jeff is working on and even the syntax manuals where is makes sense. This could
also be home to speed test cases and other regression tests.

I'm thinking this would be hosted someplace, not sure where. OSGeo servers maybe? Not sure about
a data source yet either. The Grass Spearfish data might work but I doubt it would cover all the use
cases we need although special formats and derived products could created from it.

I've attached demo table of contents as a starting point. Please let me know what you think...
