2008-06-11Cached queries (the same query is much faster when issues a second time
2008-06-11Changes gsml_is_litho function so it matches 3b (age)
2008-06-113a service url is the correct profile name

PENDINGOn the fly reprojection is shaky. now only works in EPSG:4326, unlikely to be fixed by Testbed date (but not a test item anyway)
