I think Stefan wanted to encourage maps like Era and Kingdoms has, so there are map locations which can be pointed out, rather than just an image.

Well, I agree with that, except the default map has features that aren't scriptable. Same with the default nick system and the default rating system; the list goes on.

Mmhmm, I know. I just stated what he said to me when I first asked him.

Perhaps he will add the "old" map feature back, as wished. Let's maul him till he does!

Well,

I think it would be good that a variable could be set to the player from the gmap for map image. It would also be good if you could show PM/toall/etc bubbles. I think you could probably get the x/ys of the players on the gmap already, just don't know if you could match the PMs to their owners, nevermind make the message show up when you click on them.

You could probably use the minimap in the same sense as kingdoms uses a default map, you'd just need to say that Alt+3 shows/hides the map and make the minimap really big.

I don't care so much that he's making it difficult, it's just the fact that he's making it impossible to emulate the old systems with scripted ones.
