You might have better luck reaching the folks knowledgable about the HDF5
driver on the gdal-dev list.  There is no way for the user/application to
control how the HDF5 driver guesses which dimensions are x, y and bands.
But if you can provide a pointer to the dataset I might be able to tweak
the logic a bit.
