[Qgis-developer] GDAL 1.11 new formats

GDAL/OGR 1.11 offers several new OGR formats [0] that need support added in
QGIS's source. I have added the OpenFileGDB format (because it was simple
to do) [1], but don't have enough experience with the other database
formats to add their support.

* CartoDB : read/write support
* GME (Google Map Engine) : read/write support
* GPKG (GeoPackage): read-write support (vector part of the spec.)
* SXF: read-only support
* WALK : read-only support
* WAsP .map : read-write support

Would anyone be willing to help add support for those? Looks like in
addition to qgsogrprovider.cpp's createFilters( QString type ) that
QgsVectorFileWriter::initMetaData() also needs updated.

IMO, it would be good to then backport these to release-2.2 branch as well,
so current users may benefit from the new formats. I could add my commit,
but seems like it would be better to add full GDAL/OGR 1.11 support at once
to that branch, excepting some formats if they will need more extensive
support added first.
