[ka-Map-dev] Ideas for last minute version 1.1 additions

I'm just talking about adding a data directory to the release with some
simple data.  I don't believe there is any sample data currently being
bundled with it.  I just think it'd be nice if init.php in our release was
preconfigured for the sample data so new users instantly see results after
installing FGS and copying kamap to their web server.

Do you have data that would be appropriate as sample data (lightweight and
queryable)?  I think a map of Italy would be awesome.  :p  If so, add it to
the CVS and I'll try to smooth out the bumps so it works on a clean FGS
