Yes, I see that the naming convention idea does help significantly here. 
One question: do you build GDAL and then manually copy the DLLs from the 
release or debug directories (as appropriate) into a common directory 
that is on your PATH? Or do you modify the GDAL build configurations so 
that both debug and release versions get built in the same directory, 
and then put _that_ on your path (if that is even possible)? I'm just 
trying to automate as much as possible...
