[OpenLayers-Dev] Patch for WFS Protocol to allow for different outputFormat

I wanted to do something relatively simple that is not possible with the
current WFS protocol: request a different outputFormat (JSON in my case).

The following patch makes this possible. I'd like to get feedback on
whether is is the right path to follow to get this done. If it looks
good, I'll create appropriate tests.

Example use:

                protocol: new OpenLayers.Protocol.WFS({
                        readFormat: new OpenLayers.Format.GeoJSON(),
                        formatOptions: {
                            outputFormat: "JSON"
                        }, .....

Regards, Roald

P.S. I sent this to the dev list since trac is unusable atm.
