We could write an interactive GUI tool to create a file in v.label's
simple ascii format. see gis.m's labels.tcl and maplabels.tcl
Add it to mapcanvas.tcl ("Map Display 1" toolbar)
> easy icons creation,
see the wiki page; write a script to convert from (...) format?
fwiw, I've done mine by hand, with just a little help from a calculator.
it's not too hard, the ARC start/stop are a bit weird to learn.
> better support for legends,
I agree in general, but for example? (we improve 1 feature at a time)
> simple style definition
We could put templates on the wiki site.
