I'd love to update Merkaartor but given the poor state of information
on the new API that is just not possible from the specification alone.

Adding insult to the injury the WIKI page actually states that the
0.5 API description is removed untill it goes into production...
Which means that third party developers like myself have zero
chance of getting a working version ready. Certainly not by beginning
of october, the proposed switchover date. Not nice.
