Do you need to write your own code for this?, or could you just use the 
  gdalwarp utility? (maybe after converting to a format gdal knows).

If you do need your own code, you might look at the gdalwarp code.

Which brings up a question I could answer by reading the source, but 
since I'm here:

Is the core warping functionality in the GDAL API (and wrapped for 
Python?), or in the gdalwarp code -- I may need to do some warping in 
code as well.
