That or we could also possibly accept non-complex types (assume imaginary part
= 0). Antonio's functions handle complex & non-complex AFAICS

If you write it, yes... (it doesn't exist yet if I wasn't clear)
If you follow the VRT pixel function road, that's a matter of building a on-
the-fly VRT dataset.
http://www.gdal.org/gdal_vrttut.html#gdal_vrttut_creation could possibly be
used. But AFAICS setting the pixel function name isn't supported. Could be
done by implementing CPLErr VRTSourcedRasterBand::SetMetadataItem( const char
*pszName, const char *pszValue, const char *pszDomain ), similarly to what
VRTSourcedRasterBand::SetMetadataItem(...) handles for vrt sources.

Would make sense to internalize this code (uses X/MIT license)

Yes, that shouldn't matter to the driver. It is just a string that it provides
to GDALOpen() (some care must be taken when parsing
DERIVED_SUBDATASET:algname:original_datasetname, since original_datasetname
can have columns too)

Implement in GDALDataset, the following method (from GDALMajorObject)
virtual char **GetMetadata( const char * pszDomain = "" );
char **GDALDataset::GetMetadata( const char * pszDomain = "" )
if( pszDomain != NULL && EQUAL(pszDomain, "DERIVED_SUBDATASET") )
// some stuff. Be careful that ownership of returned char** belongs
// to the dataset object
As well as :
virtual char **GetMetadataDomainList(); to report DERIVED_SUBDATASET when it
makes sense (contrary to GetMetadata(), ownership of the returned char**
belongs to the caller)
