Fwd: [gdal-dev] 1.7 Release Planning

 Frank and others-

I would vote for an options that adds UNIFIED_SRC_NODATA to a resulting VRT
file when using AutoCreateWarpedVRT from SWIG languages. It really is a pain
to write the code to add it manually and the NoData option is pretty much
mandatory if you are tiling from 8-bit (1 channel) raster files.
Ticket #2724 has more background on the issue. Gdal2Tiles.py also has code
that demonstrates the process of adding the required tags to the VRT file-
it's not pretty.
