MapServer 5.0 has a bunch of mapfile changes and a few deprecated 
members and methods in MapScript. I think ka-Map's use of PHP MapScript 
is fairly simple stuff so there may not be any problem with the scripts, 
mostly with mapfiles.

That being said, I didn't try ka-Map with 5.0 and don't think I'll have 
time anytime soon. Someone should try it with an eye on the migration 
guide and report their success/failures here.

Um... I just thought of one thing: the scale -> scaledenom change may 
have an impact on ka-Map since it probably uses them. The old scale 
members still exist in PHP MapScript but are deprecated so ka-Map should 
switch to use the new scaledenom members when it aims to support 5.0.
