I was answering your mail, but Regina and Leo have answered before
(and for sure better) than me. So, only remarks the import/export
topic is one of my TODO tasks. I'd like to improve this process in 2

- By expanding the GDAL driver to allow new PostGIS Raster creation,
not only reading
- By improving the native loader. Currently, is based on INSERTS and
this can be hell for really big raster coverages.

I'd like to take a deeper look on the chapter. My last version is from
11/8/2010. Is it the last one?
