[gdal-dev] Passing information between drivers

I am working on some drivers that contain extra metadata, which I would
need to pass on to the new files created when running, for example,
gdalwarp, if the output driver supports it.

In particular, the drivers do import and export satellite images, and
the output image of gdalwarp would need to carry, if possible, extra
metadata such as the sensor model or the channel number, from the input

Is the output driver given a chance to query the input driver, or can it
only rely on the limited set of information it gets via Set* methods?
