I so agree, maps are evil. There is a group in Italy that is working on
some for OpenNMS and they have a branch in our CVS, but I don't think
any code has been contributed.
The average network size of our commercial support customers is around
7000 nodes - just pretty much impossible to make a useful map out of
it, that can be *maintained*. Sure, you can get one to work for a
little while, but you'd find yourself spending half your time
maintaining the map for little benefit.
