Thanks Even,

Just a quick note. By reading the docs it seems the overviews will be created by default except if OVERVIEWS=FORCE_USE_EXISTING is set and if the input file doesn’t have overviews. The specs make overviews optional thus the OVERVIEWS option usage seems a bit odd. 

TBH, I’m 100% with creating overviews by default and I think they should not be optional, but users that don’t want overviews might found the usage a bit complicated.
