When I do "ogrinfo --formats" I get:

warmerda at amd64[6]% ogrinfo --formats
Supported Formats:
   -> "ESRI Shapefile" (read/write)
   -> "MapInfo File" (read/write)
   -> "UK .NTF" (readonly)
   -> "SDTS" (readonly)
   -> "TIGER" (read/write)
   -> "S57" (read/write)
   -> "DGN" (read/write)
   -> "VRT" (readonly)
   -> "AVCBin" (readonly)
   -> "REC" (readonly)
   -> "Memory" (read/write)
   -> "CSV" (read/write)
   -> "GML" (read/write)
   -> "KML" (read/write)
   -> "Interlis 1" (read/write)
   -> "Interlis 2" (read/write)
   -> "SQLite" (read/write)
   -> "PostgreSQL" (read/write)
   -> "MySQL" (read/write)

I think this was added post GDAL 1.3.2.  Was this inadequate in
some fashion?
