i planned on doing something like this. however this is not too useful, 
unless i finally find the time todo an automatic download from some map 
server, which is actually pretty hard for me to implement (with a 
dial-up connection, which means in germany that you have to pay for 
every minute). however i ll be moving to a dsl area in september...

would be fine if you would do it... i am exceptionally bad at such 

just for the protocol: the cvs server died of a hardware error do not 
expect it to be back soon.
