Mapgrab update - grab an image from a Web Map Service

Thanks to Joe Kerski on the edgis list for a heads up on this one... From the Czech Republic comes this clever free (General Public License) command line tool, MapGrab, which will grab an image from a Web Map Service and deliver it complete with georeferencing information. The website notes that it is "Especially intended for personal or educational use" and warns that one should be aware of "possible legal restrictions when using data created from public map servers."
