[mapserver-dev] RFC-60: Label enhancement to skip ANGLE FOLLOW labels with overlapping chars

There was a discussion on IRC today on this: GeoServer does not 
differentiate between outside vs inside overlapping labels, it just 
discards any label with an overlap angle greater than 22.5 degrees.

I have to admit that I have read the descriptions several times for 
negative vs positive MAXOVERLAPANGLE and it is still confusing to me. 
If we do enable both, can you define better what the "inside" and 
"outside" of a line is?
