Support Create() method for NetCDF driver so that gdalwarp can be used on a netcdf file

We'd like to be able to use gdalwarp functionality with NetCDF files as an output, which requires supporting the Create() and IWriteBlock() methods for the NetCDF driver.
The NetCDF C API supports creating a file with empty variables, then later updating an existing file, and random-access writing, all prerequisites for the Create() method in GDAL.
This should likely involve refactoring the GDAL driver so common functionality is shared between the Create() and CreateCopy() methods.
