The fdogdal provider would work fine with 1.3.2, and I would like to see
an upgrade.  My only concern is if parts of FDO or MapGuide might be
using the OGR coordinate system support and depending on local modifications
to the code.

However, I have done a comparison of all the .cpp files in gdal/ogr (where
most of the coordinate system stuff is) and there are no apparent differences
from the stock 1.3.1.  So I think we would be safe to upgrade to 1.3.2.
