Well with this new set up both can actually go in, it can be GDAL,
MapGuide and MapServer, whereas before it was GDAL, uDig and GeoServer
in that session. Also it looks like uDig isn't going, so we can fill
that with another foundation project - MapBuilder or MapBender could
make sense there if someone from there is going... I basically want to
show off how you can use open standards to actually modify the map, as
displayed in World Wind, and either of those would work fine for that.
