Hi Shawn/Adam,

My suggestion is that you should file a ticket for each problem you solved describing the reasons 
for the changes maid. You should attach the changed source code to the ticket and some sample data 
too (or the path to where I get download it from) so that we can test your changes.

Talking about test, before all that, I would suggest you to run gdal_autotest on your site for those 
driver that you have changed. That would help you guys to identify if there is any undesirables side 
effect caused by your changes.

Best regards,
