Hi Ingo!

Sorry for taking so long to reply, but I'm a little busy these days. Even

Alex should be the one to decide whether it would be useful or not. The problem 
I see is that v0.3 isn't truly tilebased (movement and collision detection 
was), whereas the gfx could be of arbitrary size.

With the forthcoming engine, it'll be even lesss tilebased, I think. (Alex!?)

Given that v0.4 will be much different from v0.3, its not really worth the 
trouble to add support for the old version. The really interesting stuff like 
items and combat will never make it into v0.3, so I imagine that it would be of 
little interest to the community.

As for v0.4, Alex should know better than I. I'm not even sure how far the new 
map engine is. Last I've heard was that there were problems writing a map 
editor using PyQT, as the Python wrappers for QT weren't compatible with our 
SWIG generated wrappers.

Anyway, thanks for the offer. Would be nice if it could save us some work.
