Thanks. As that was my hunch, I wanted to cast a wide net here. I'll
contact the developers, though I probably won't use myself (at this
point) something that's not robust.

I should add that with the "Climate Change Integration Plugfest"
announced a month ago for FOSS4G2009
(http://www.osgeo.org/news/2009/01/FOSS4G_Integration), maybe SOS will
get more attention.
