MapBox vs MapImage

So I noticed some of the source code in SharpMap.UI uses the MapBox components versus the MapImage.  There are some nice things about the MapBox that I really liked (e.g., the zoom rectangle and measure tools).  The built-in toolbar is a nice and quick feature as well.  Is the MapBox just a hack or will there some future support for this in the 0.9 trunk or should we just stick with the MapImage code?

BTW - where can I get the latest version of the MapBox code?  I seem to have 3 different versions of it on my machine.  Is someone maintaining this tool?

Thanks,

Dirk
