I would add: it has to be solved anyway, sooner or later.

I think we should stick to Python as much as possible for non-core
plugins. Our experience of non-core C++ plugins has never been
especially brilliant: they fall very easily in the shadow, they are very
difficult to have in many different platform, to keep in synch with
changes in trunk, and they end up being much less used than they would
In brief, my suggestion is: either a non core Python plugin, or a core C
++ one (including the dependency on OTB).

Yes, I would suggest to have a look to this; in case it does not solve
it entirely, it would be a good idea to further improve the raster
provider to add support for this.
All the best.
