[gdal-dev] python bindings: 2x ds.WriteRaster?

Hi list,

Remembering a recent message mentioning the existence of both 
'ReadArray' and 'WriteArray' on the dataset level of the python swig 
bindings, I opened up my gdal.py (svn rev. 23438), and found this:

There is a ds.ReadAsArray()
There is no ds.WriteArray()
There are *2* defined functions ds.WriteRaster() (line 730, and line 767 
in gdal.py).

Especially the last point is bothering me... What is the intention of 
that? Afaik one of those will probably never be called? Should one of 
those have had a different name? Is my gdal.py bad?
