[mapserver-dev] RFC 72: Adding GEOMTRANSFORM to Layer/Label Objects

   Very exciting!  My main use-case would be for labeling rivers "above" 
the rivers.  I see that GEOS has implemented a SingleSideBuffer / 
OffsetCurve, which may help in the implementation (could be a challenge 
with interpreting left/right vs above/below though).

   Performance could be a problem when requesting features from a large 
datastore since the spatial filter needs to be applied to the buffered 
feature.  Perhaps expanding the MBR of the spatial fliter by the buffer 
value would be a solution...

Best Regards,
Brent Fraser
