[mapserver-dev] 6.0 backwards compatibility

+1 on both of these. If these are deprecated or going away in the future 
then NOW is a good time to make that so or wait for 7.0.

That said, Daniel needs to draw a line in the sand as far as 
non-critical changes so we can release this. Beta 4 was the last planned 
Beta, I thought, so we are working overtime at this point. But these 
changes should clean up the code and simplify the docs so that is a big 
plus on those fronts.
