Hi all,

Just an email to say that I'm currently working on a project that 
requires raster capability and so it's the first time I've managed to 
take a look at the new functionality.

And I'm really impressed at the work that you guys have done so far in 
regard to the implementation and documentation - great effort guys!

In terms of things to do for a 2.0 release, I'd like suggest the following:

- Review the consolidation of the raster/vector codebases. The directory 
structure in particular looks as if it's just been dumped there, and 
there is some work to remove excessive version numbering in 
autoconf/separate raster versioning

- Convert raster2pgsql.py to C with a longer-term view of integrating it 
into the loader GUI.

I can probably start to take a look at the C conversion if everyone 
agrees that this is the right thing to do going forward?
