[fdo-internals] FDO RFC 16 - FDO Provider for SQLite

I don't think that any sane user would want to do that, but then sane
users generally don't need different projections in the same file either
:)  I think I'd prefer to allow the users the option of being insane,
unless there is a performance reason to not support multiple formats in
the same database.

Are there any other things that would require a global configuration

It does seem like the geometry format should be a global per database
setting. Why would you want one geometry column using FGF, another using
WKB, and a third using WKT all in the same database? On the other hand,
global setting might require yet another meta-data table.

My 2 cents for what they are worth...
