[gdal-dev] Constructing GDAL_WMS XML files for TMS servers

Hi again,

A couple of weeks ago I learned how to use gdalinfo and gdal_translate to
make the XML service files used by the WMS drivers.

For instance,

 gdalinfo "WMS:http://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/cgi-bin/wms/nexrad/n0r.cgi"

produces a list of subdatasets and any of these can be turned into GDAL_WMS
XML format like this:

 gdal_translate the_subdataset_name out.xml -of WMS

This works great for the regular WMS servers I've tried.

What about TMS servers?  Is there a similar command command for (say)
http://tile.openstreetmap.org  ?

Thanks again for all the help,
