Thanks for all the help,

I will get Geoid from CVS, and contribute to that (I might need some 
help making my code suitable for the
pedigree of an Apache project though :-) ).

I agree that using SLDs for the WFS makes sense.

The comment on the WMS not being too much use, I was thinking of 
extending Cocoon ImageReader class
to reduce the image, extract bytes etc (some clients require a byte 
stream within two XML tags).

Again if anyone wants to help me, then give me a mail.  I think the WFS 
generator should be very quick to do.

Many thanks,
