[gdal-dev] profiles in gdal2tiles.py

Hi All,

I'm interested in experimenting with creating tile sets in various coordinate systems (other than the usual EPSG:3857 and EPSG:4326).  The good news is that it looks like as of GDAL v3.2 gdal2tiles.py supports a "profile" option for defining the tile set including the coordinate system.

The profile is in JSON with all the detail gdal2tiles would require to create tiles (example: https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/blob/master/gdal/data/tms_MapML_APSTILE.json)

I suppose I could create a profile JSON file by hand (or do some coding) but I thought I would ask if there was an existing tool?
