[FWTools] spurious coordinates being written from PostGIS query

Like so many things in life, the problem turned out to be obvious in
retrospect--my colleague was hitting a PostGIS 0.9x install that stored
geometry as text whereas I was hitting a newer version that stores geometry as
binary.  Adding the functions AsText() or AsEWKT() to my queries makes
everything works fine.

Now that the elements are all working together--CGI, Python, PostGIS, and OGR,
things are starting to come together very nicely.
