I have introduced the GDAL GRIB driver by Bas Retsios into GDAL SVN.  However,
since it consists of roughly 45000 lines of code, produces copious warnings
and I haven't really done a proper IP review, I have avoided dumping it into
the main tree.

Instead I have placed it in a temporary tree I'm calling /spike.  If you
pull the grib driver from there and dump it in your frmts directory (as
well as svn updating your main tree) you should be able to build grib
support - at least on unix (windows should follow shortly).

cd ~/gdal/frmts
svn checkout https://svn.osgeo.org/svn/gdal/trunk/spike/grib grib
cd ..
svn update

Those interested in GRIB format are encouraged to give it a quick spin,
though it should be considered preliminary.
