I answered your comments in my blog

I have a question: What's the best way to test a new driver's code? I've
loaded this TIFF file into PostGIS using gdal2wktraster.py:
and I think that I can simply do gdalinfo PG:.... to test if my driver is

Another option is to create testing code, but gdalinfo is more reliable that
any code that I can write...
