A StyledMapPane with a 'setContext(Context)' method has been added to
the GUI module.
StyledMapPane extends MapPane (not to be confused with MapPaneImpl),
which uses the J2D renderer (not to be confused with Java2DRenderer).
Advantages of MapPane/J2D-renderer are: fast, work with arbitrary
projections (which may be mixed in the same map), supports arbitrary
amount of offscreen buffering, scrollbars, many zoom capabilities (mouse
drag, mouse whell, keyboard, popup menu), status bar with mouse
coordinates in arbitrary CS (doesn't need to be the same than the one
used in MapPane), magnifier, supports rotations, widget localized in
English, French, Portuges, and partially in Spanish and Greek, more
precise scale factor (which take in account the physical size of yours
monitor), display a map scale, etc.
Styling is done using RenderedLayerFactory. If more styling is required,
this is the class to edit.
