Thanks for the clarifications.

I will research more on data types, functions of OpenGIS to get a thorough
understanding on them. Meanwhile I'll come up with a set of features for the
GSoC proposal based on the suggestions you made.

Further I will submit patche(s) as proof of concept for one or two small
features I wish to implement under GSoC.

P.S: Thanks for coming up as the mentor for this project idea. :)
