I'd like to follow up on Daniel's comment: shouldn't we remove the
'--ignore-missing-data' compile switch completely and have this
triggered only by the CONFIG parameter? Definitely. As I understand
it, if I forget to set that switch for MS4W users they would still need
somehow re-compile MapServer for this functionality...which we are
really trying to avoid here, I thought.
So my vote is to drop that required switch.
