Hi list,

I've created a patch that introduces a new feature: label halos for 
vector features (See [1]). It helps making text labels readable on all 
There is now a request to include having a background with border around 
the text as well [2]. I'm happy to have a look at this over the X-mas 
break, but I'd like to get some feedback from the core devs first 
whether or not the initial patch is the way to go, especially wrt the 
VML implementation.

When you have a spare few minutes, could you please have a look at the 
patch and comment on it?
