I'm somewhat leery about the provider deciding whether to return meters or
degrees internally with no way for the application code to know what will
happen.  I think, either the provider should indicate what it is going to
do, or we should peg this down and perhaps provide helper functions to
support it as suggested by others.

Does FDO currently provide any generic means to reproject feature geometries?
I have the impression it does not, though I might easily have missed it.  I
think it ought to.
