I submitted a patch that adds no-data support to the HFA driver back in
April or so; it's not scheduled to be included until the 1.5 release,
but we've been using it internally ever since then and have run into no
problems with it. You can find the patch here:


The patch was written against the 1.4.0 source tree, but I've
successfully applied it to 1.4.1 and 1.4.3 as well.

Hope that helps!
