I like this overall. Except that the change in the behavior of 
msLayerGetShape() could break some MapScript applications. Could we not 
leave msLayerGetShape() unchanged and instead add a new 
msResultSetGetShape() that acts on the current result set?

About the OGR driver, my first reaction is that I don't expect any 
significant problem (famous last words...)
