Honestly you shouldn't have to put time and effort into making cooperation happen. Its our responsibility to do that as the primary sponsor of the project, and we continue to do a good job of mucking it up with our closed source mind set.

I suppose primarily I was disappointed that so much work forked off on the
mapinfo driver without regard to collaboration with the MITAB developers
or GDAL/OGR developers.  But there have been other situation in which it
seems that "getting something done now for Autodesk" overrides cooperation.
If I had more time and energy I might try and help make that cooperation
