There has been a massive set of changes applied to ESRI morphing and to
some extent to a variety of drivers in an attempt to better preserve
coordinate systems through various drivers.  It is being handled via this


I'm not prepared to backport to 1.6 as there are several outstanding issues
related to the changes made.  I'm also a bit uncertain whether it makes sense
to move such broad changes into the 1.6 branch.

In brief, I'm not sure when or if these changes will go into 1.6 branch.
