a real preview is indeed helpful. A MapServer map derived from
a Thuban map will definitely look different since the tools
have different rendering engines.

It might be in interesting option to incorporate the currently
very experimental WMS access of Thuban into the overall process
of creating a UMN MapServer application.

However, Thuban is not a replacement for MapLab since MapLab
is a web-based solution and thus offers a different approach
and different opportunities.
