[mapserver-dev] MongoDB support?

Hi All,

Has anyone thought of adding support for MongoDB? I asked on the GDAL 
list if there was support via OGR.

MongoDB is a popular NoSQL database, there are others and google around 
it seems that people have experimented with moving shapefiles in and out 
of it using python and ogr.

Anyway, I'm trying to keep up with the technology and found that MongoDB 
actually has some basic spatial support built into it. Which got me to 
the point that I would like to be able to issue a query and pull points 
and attributes into a mapserver layer.

Any thoughts on how to do this?
