A good idea. The only issue I can think of is that it might be a good
idea to tell the client the size of the GML dataset and that's not known
beforehand. I'll make some tests with that.
I guess I could also try to catch out-of-memory errors happening in GDAL
by wrapping them with Perl eval and then bailing out more gracefully.
