Apparently, one of our customers uses an FDO SQLite database.  

I have seen that the OGR core does not currently support curve geometries,
so these objects could not be handled that way.  I was thinking that perhaps
someone might be working on producing a polyline or polygon representation
of an FGF curve object.

I found the FGF Binary Specification  here
