wow, I didn't notice you've forked it on GH and working on that!

BTW, I see there's another fork [1] as well as some issues was fixed by
you and "geonux" (e.g. using the epsg vs proj string).

What do you think about a brainstorming (even by email...) on how to
it avoiding waste of time due effort on the same fixes?

I really like your work as in this moment MapServer has a weak SLD1.1
BTW I hope you understand I've chosen SLD because this format is (or at
should become) the standard for style interchange, so unbound to different

Best regards.
