Tim, I know.

I just want to add it automatically from my plugin, with Java, in a
independent way that is not affected by future changes in the WMS plugin.

Is it your plugin? Sorry, I looked at svn history and saw Frederik was the
only editor. Then, should I ask the plugin modifications to you?

Regards,
Quico
