Well, the GMap demo contains a mapfile and data for Canada and is freely
redistributable. It used to be that ka-Map came preconfigured for use
with GMap out of the box. I haven't checked recently if that has
changed, but if not then you already have a solution, it's just that
GMap is a separate download instead of being bundled with the source.
BTW, as a software developer my 0.02$ is that demo data should ideally
be kept separate from software source code. Yes it's a good thing to
bundle an easy to install demo dataset, but I think it has to remain
possible and easy to get only the software without the demo data.
