Just to let you know we have been working on a fork of this plugin
during a sprint with Thomas Bonfort (from the MapServer project) to
replace the use of SLD for conversion by direct calls to the mapscript API.

The code can be found here :

We mainly focused on the new symbology and most of the features are
covered. There are still features that would be very hard to translate
into mapserver terms.

Let us know if you find this useful.
