Saw this thing on a few blogs today:


and of course seeing 'arcgis only' made me think that a similar tool
that used gdal/ogr and interfaced to qgis (and other mapping packages)
would be rather good.

I recall starting to write something similar, but discovered so many
spatial data sets appeared twice - for example a directory with
shapefiles in it is seen by OGR as a data set with each shapefile a
layer, and the shapefiles themselves appear as data sets in their own
right. I think I stopped there (I'm easily beaten).

 But I have a vague recall that someone else has worked on something
similar. Or did I dream it?
