Is there any interest in proposing a generic GDAL/OGR scripting 
workshop? Would it work out or would there be too much of confusion 
among all the languages?

I'd be interested in such or, if that does not work out, then in a 
workshop, which would focus on Perl bindings + the things that I have 
built on top of GDAL/OGR and its bindings, perhaps especially on GTK and 
GTK-Perl and my GTK-Perl Geo stuff.
