I believe Carl would like WAImageMapTag to provide an api
as complete as WAImageTag's api, i.e. #altText:, #document:,
#mimeType:, #url:, #fileName:

Currently, the only way to supply an image to an WAImageMapTag
is to send #form: with a Form object.

Carl is using VW, there is no screenshot application in VW.

The #form: message cannot be used since VW does not have Form.

I agree with Carl that we should add the missing apis.
Maybe with an api like this

	(html imageMap)
		callback: [:pt | self clickAt: pt];
		title: '...';
		id: #id;
		image: [:image | ... ]

where image is an instance of WAImageTag

If no one else volunteers, I can take care.
