My understanding was that when you override a virtual method, your
new method is also virtual, whether you use the virtual keyword or
not.  Since GDALDataset::~GDALDataset() is virtual, that should 
effectively make MEMDataset::~MEMDataset() virtual too.  Of course,
I may be confused, so just to be on the safe side, I have committed an
update to memdataset.h including the virtual keyword.
