[gdal-dev] GDAL 1.6.0 GDALValidateCreationOptions

Hi All,

Create()/CreateCopy() now validates the creation options using 
GDALValidateCreationOptions(). GDALValidateCreationOptions() generates
a warning if any of creation options is not supported by the driver.
Create()/CreateCopy() fails if there is a warning.

This seems to be too harsh. My app breaks now since it always includes
a "TFW" creation option.

Can the validation be optional?

Gao, Peng
