There are still a few quirks with the existing scripts in pymod (for instance
the use of progress monitors).  But generally they work well with the NG
bindings and yes, they ought to be moved out of the pymod directory and given
their own install target of some sort.

Hopefully we can address this in the GDAL 1.5.0 release when the NG bindings
are expected to become the default python bindings.
