It's a good point to debate.

I guess that it would be nice to everybody trying Kamap for the first 
time and avoid a black screen once they try to set it up over their 
existing mapserver applications.

The idea to put more parameter in the mapfile is good as leave the 
config file simple.
But, on the other side, it means that a "normal" map file will not be 
useful to a kamap setup.

Personally I prefer to put some more hacks, well explained, in the 
config file and leave the mapfile alone.  At least we could decide what 
layers are in groups in the config file.

In any case who use kamap has to learn how to tell the system to use 
kamap features. I would like to manage everything from the config file. 
It would be simple for debug too.

A possible scenario, as example, would permit to create two (or more) 
different kamap implementation starting from the same data and mapfile 
and offer different projections (thinking on Andrea world map).

that's just my opinion
