Could anyone confirm if following statements correct for
FDO SHP provider?

1. Currently, SHP provider does not support create/destroy datastore

2. I can create empty shapefile ie. using shpcreate/dbfcreate utils from
Shapelib package, then I can use these shapefiles to apply schema and
fill with data.

3. SHP data store is interpreted as a directory/set of shapefiles.

4. Feature class definition is mapped to single shapefile.

5. Feature class properties are mapped to columns of
a shapefile's DBF and geometry stored in .shp file.

Thanks very much!
