I think that was exactly Bob's point: There is already an FDO driver for
SDF. If OGR is sufficient, I'm not entirely sure why FDO wouldn't be by
the same argument.

I'm with Mat, in feeling that it's not the path to the widest usage in
only FDO *or* OGR, and that a reference implementation outside of either
of those would result in possibly higher OEM-style integration into non
OGR/FDO products, and that a single shared implementation is the best
way for all developers to share a single effort when moving forward.
