I forgot to mention that Length is the name of the method in the OGC 
Simple Features specification. In a sprint in Barcelona I added that 
method and others like Area. There was (non-standard) GetArea before but 
no GetLength. GetArea still exists but is deprecated (although there is 
no official deprecation procedure in GDAL).
