I don't know of anyone who's made changes like these, they
sound great!

I think there probably is, but imagemap is such a small
program, you might as well add in the features, and whoever wants to
use them will use them. My motto is always "keep it simple", though.

I would by default send any mods, bugs, and patches to Rob McCool,
since he integrated it with NCSA's server in the first place. If anyone
is willing to maintain the "official" version of NCSA's imagemap program,
you should send mail to him.
