[gdal-dev] is there a way to concatenate the band in raster file name

Hi all

Using the netCDF driver, I have noticed that there is a nice syntax
for getting the dataset and the single raster in the dataset.

For example, in my case, for accessing the dataset:

   $ gdalinfo NETCDF:/my/path/data/mynetcdf_dataset.nc

and for accessing the single raster:

   $ gdalinfo NETCDF:/my/path/data/mynetcdf_dataset.nc:myraster

I was wondering if there is a way (that could be very useful also for
other raster formats) to concatenate also the band, something like

   $ gdalinfo NETCDF:/my/path/data/mynetcdf_dataset.nc:myraster:myband

I would need this for using it in MapServer, without the need to
create virtual rasters (that seems to be the only viable solution at
my eyes)
Thanks for your patience
