I'd be willing to push forward immediately on packaging GDAL 1.7.  At that
point jef could rework QGIS at least to use it.  He is already using "not the
standard version" for QGIS since he uses 1.6 and the standard version is the
ancient 1.5.

I'll work on the packaging of 1.7 in the next few days and provide notice when
it is ready on the osgeo4w list.   I will pattern it on the 1.6 package.
