I am very supportive of these 2 technologies being part of the MapServer 
project.  The fact that they will all be able to share the same 
configuration file is really a nice feature.
They definitely fit as part of a common trend of needs that we see.

I am also hoping that other complementary tools (such as map file 
editors, installers ...) would be considered in the future  as being 
able to be part of the MapServer project if that make sense for both
