Hi Stephen, you are right in this point too.

In the next future I'll have to face many little enhancements related  
to actual interface.
I would like to offer a comfortable interface for most users.
Most features are already ok, I think, but I'll love to refine  
Identify/query system and the search system. With Andrea we are  
working an independent hilite system that's mostly developed. This  
should be called from a query table or from the search table  
independently, I guess this will be nice.

Then I guess we miss only two stupid features: navigation history and  
measure function.
the first one is simple but has the risk to add another calculation  
over the event extent_changed that's already charged (in my opinion).
the second one need a technology to draw lines that should be  
vectorial and it's once again not clear. Maybe PG ObjectOverlay API  
is perfect for this job.
who want's to work on this is welcome.

All features like editing vectorial elements should start to be  
evaluated after version 1.0 is out and stable.
I'll surely love to put my hands on that code!
