I believe gdal_translate creates the VRTDataset bit by bit because it
may need to alter some fundamental things (like number of bands, types
and size).  But if all you want to change is malliable stuff such as
coordinate system or geotransform you can just use the VRT CreateCopy()
and then modify the results.
