[mapserver-dev] WFS GetFeature - gml_constants, et al

I have had some success with having WFS GetFeature use the template
engine for output.

Now I'm working on OGR output and I'm wondering how much of the
existing WFS gml output logic I need to replicate.  For instance there
is a concept of "gml_constants" - apparently for adding constant fields
in returned features.  I can't find any documentation on this other than:


Were you intending to document this in the WFS Server document?  Should
I try to replicate the behavior for the non-GML output?

I'm guessing that the gml_groups support doesn't really make sense in
non-GML products - would you agree?

I am guessing we *do* want to replicate gml_include_items, gml_[item]_alias,
and gml_[item]_type behavior in non-GML feature output.  Would you agree?
