Answer is: generation of Google Maps tiles is possible, but not
available yet in the GDAL trunk version. I am working on merging now.
In the new version of gdal2tiles you don't need to reproject your
raster in advance, as the utility itself is doing the reprojection.
Please check the archive of the gdal-dev conference. Search
"gdal2tiles" and "maptiler".
