[gdal-dev] HowTo open NetCDF SUBDATASET and write to new file

Hello. Our examples differ in that you called the ReadAsArray() on a
single band, which returns an array with dimensions (ny,nx), and I called
it on the subdataset, which returns an array with dimensions
(nbands,ny,nx). In my example the array returned has size (539,78,141),
where the two outer dimensions are concatenated into the single band
dimension. The reshape() method is called on the array to get to the 4-d
form that is in the netcdf file.
Note, this works if gdal python bindings use numpy. If bindings use
Numeric, then instead it should be either ds.ReadAsArray().resize(...) or
I arrived at my example through the "banging away at it" method, too.
