Sorry about starting the cross-posting.  The topic started in the users
group and responses last night seemed more targeted towards internals, so I
cc'ed that group.  Should we move the discussion to internal at this point?

Well, I suppose this would be the right solution (as opposed to the
expedient solution of my just using OGR for the tileindex).

My hope is that "earmarked sponsorship" can be handled as a purchase order
for specific delivered functionality even if it goes through the foundation.
I would agree that general sponsorship is a harder sell from a "purchasing"
point of view.

PS. I hate these cross postings.
