Provider for Esri's File Geodatabase

A new provider has been added to access feature data stored in Esri's File Geodatabase. It is at an early stage and you are invited to test it. It uses Esri's File Geodatabase API SDK, so it is limited to file geodatabases of version 1.2 (created with ArcGIS 10)
