Current potlatch somehow disqualifies in some areas (e.g. Italy)
because of its lack to use WMS-layers and not just Yahoo-Imagery. For
example in Italy Yahoo-imagery has quite some offset and very poor
resolution compared to the aerial imagery available from PCN. Probably
the same issue occurs in Australia (Nearmap).

I agree that these issues may be obsolete when Potlatch 2.0 will be available.
