[mapserver-dev] IGNORE_MISSING_DATA

Sorry if I'm late to the game, still working through emails after FOSS4G 
and another 2 days conference last week.

I agree with Assefa that LOG should be dependent on DEBUG [1-5] and 
MS_ERRORFILE being set and this needs to be documented. If we decide 
that DEBUG [1-5] is not required for LOG to work then that would be an 
exception and needs to be documented, together with the required setting 

If I had written that RFC I would have been tempted of dropping the 
--ignore-missing data configure option completely to cleanup and 
simplify the code, but I can live with it.

+1 otherwise.
