Wow! nice work. I'm all for simplification of the code. And a non-voting 
+1 on modernizing the code base and moving to C++. I'm impressed by all 
the improvements and enhancements you do on so many projects and I'm for 
things that make your life easier and improve the code. I've seen old 
legacy code way down and smother other projects and would hate to see 
that happen on mapserver.
