GDAL ODBC driver should provide the possibility to specify FID field

Description

GDAL ODBC driver should provide the possibility to specify FID field, so as to 
bring GetFeature into effect. Otherwise the whole result set of a layer will 
be tranferred to the client side.

It would be convenient to consider at least the field named "ogc_fid" as FID 
field.

In the current implementation primary key detection does not seem to work. And 
for SQL views cannot be used at all.

Tamas, 

In the current CVS version of GDAL/OGR you can set the 
ODBC_OGR_FID configuration variable to force selection
of a particular field as the FID.  However, this configuration
variable is global, not per layer, so it isn't really ideal. 

I am going to leave this bug report open as a request to 
be able to specify the FID field in the connection string
when listing table(s) explicitly. 

BTW, configuration variables can be set as environment
variables.

All those tickets have more than one year and nobody has acted on it, so the priority is not so high
