The intention was to illustrate the use of the API, not great GUI  
design :)  There are certainly different ways of presenting this to  
users depending on the purpose of the application.  My hope is that  
you can get a few maps into ka-Map and start playing with a minimum  
of fuss, then start figuring out how to make it do what you want  
after you have maps working ...
