[Mapserver-users] nesting of layers in WMS

Hi list,

as most of you know Mapserver supports nesting of layers as a WMS server
by using the GROUP attribute for layers.

However this only supports nesting layers one level deep, while the OGC
WMS spec allows it to be nested infinitely.

Are there any plans for Mapserver to support a deeper level of nesting,
like e.g. the Cubewerx server supports? Will this still be practical with
the current MAP file format, or will it need an XML map file format?

Best regards,
