[maplab-users] Separate MapEdit

I'm not aware of anybody having done this, but it should not be all
that challenging.

Once the preview is launched it doesn't pass anything back to Mapedit
so the changes required are relatively isolated.

You would need to replace maplab/htdocs/mapedit/preview.phtml with a
chameleon application script. Problems are likely to arise related to
differences between the PHP session variables maintained by Maplab
versus the ones used by Chameleon. The PHP error messages generated by
chameleon if you try this should guide you to what needs to be
modified to make them cooperate.

If you do undertake this, consider making your changes available to
the list so that other users can benefit.
