I wonder why the ywms plugin is a plugin at all as it sounds like it's exaclty
the type of server i am asking for.

I've been told that the yahoo license permits derivative works which also
is the reason why potlatch and josm are making use of this. Wouldn't a 
server distrubuting slightly converted/scales/cropped images not also
provide just derivative work?
