Comment (by hobu):

 There have been a number of PDAL developments since this ticket was first
 developed that might be interesting in relation to this task:

 1) The PDAL
 PipelinExecutor] class allows you to insert PDAL Pipeline JSON and get
 back PDAL PointViews quite easily. This means no more manual or laborious
 pdal::Stage construction. The executor class can hide all of that for you.
 Dig in the Python or Java extensions for inspiration on how to use it.

 2) PDAL is now available via OSGeo4W64. We won't be committing to
 maintaining the 32-bit builds, but the 64-bit builds will be generated as
 part of PDAL's continuous integration and included in all major PDAL
