Adding support for new 'Rasterlite2' (not to be confused with 'Rasterlite').
Although the development of 'Rasterlite2' has not yet been completed, the probability is high, that by the time the Driver is completed, it will be.
Although both are from spatialite, Rasterlite2 is a completely different product and therefore should be considered as a new Raster-Driver.
The development of Rasterlite (or 'Rasterlite1') has been not be declared 'obsolete / deprecated', but to my knowledge no further development is to be made.
Rasterlite2 has however replaced libgaiagraphics (as of 2014-06-07)
and therefore should be consider a completely new Driver and NOT an update or extension of another.
In the last months I have been working with Rasterlite2, so I would be interested in working on the creation of this Driver and submit the result here.
As a starting point, I would start with the present 'Rasterlite' in 'gdal/frmts/rasterlite'.
My assumption at this point, not being that familiar with gdal drivers, is that the 'Rasterlite' has been correctly done and can be used as a starting point.
It may be a good idea for someone more knowledgeable than I to have a look and see if this has been done in the 'preferred way'.
While just building a qgis project with rasterlite databases, I noticed that the Rasters are not showing.
The terminal shows sql-errors:'near ",": syntax error'
On my german machine the decimal points are showing up as decimal commas and there is a missing '(' after the first WHERE.
When corrected, the image is shown correctly in spatialite_gui.
I will look into this now and if I find the cause, will report it as an extra 'Rasterlite' error.
