 [deleted implementation ideas]

My initial understanding of this feature would be to add an HTML
atribute to each map entry that would automagically be displayed
along with the image for those who do not autoload images. Anyway,
these features will need to be in the next release.

:-)  Probably because of a bug/feature of my doing relative URLs
in the mapfile.  Anyway, it is fixed in the new version.

mod_imap is ready for some public testing.  I have added the following
config parameters based on RobT's suggestions.

base_uri [ map | referer | /somebasepath ]

map - access map-relative url
referer - access referer-relative url
/path - allows setting base for all entries in the mapfile.

You may now also have relative map urls.
ie. rect ../../index.html 0,80 80,80
There is a known bug that prevents you from doing ../../ with a trailing

There is *no* need for imagemap.conf.  Simply name the imagemap file with
a .imap extension and away you go.

Mail me if you can test this a bit and I will send you a copy.
