 No, I meant import gdal16 in python plugins into qgis.
 In this moment I run qgis-dev.bat then the gdal16.bat was yet called. But
 gdaltools-plugin fails to import gdal16-python tools by calling "import
 gdal", because it tried to import the inexistent gdal lib!
 About gdal in qgis, in linux gdal1.6 *overwrite* gdal1.5, then why the
 osgeo4w on win doesn't have the same behaviour? [[BR]] If I install gdal16
 lib, I suppose and want (if supported) it will be used!

 I think this is an osgeo4w issue, do you?
