Sweet that got me 1/2 way there. DefineProject_management sets the XY Coordinate System. Would you happen to know what GP tool can do the raster coordinate system (next tab in the screenshot)?

comment gdal_merge.py with single band raster
That's it! thanks Luke :) I tried just gdal_translate in hopes that might do it but I wasn't aware of the -expand parameter :). btw +1 for use of the word recalcitrant :P

comment How to delete feature class features faster (ArcPy)
Only 124 feature classes actually had features, the rest were empty. BTW you just gave me an idea! Perhaps creating the SDE connection file using an Oracle direct connect will help improve performance. I'll give that a try next.

comment How to delete feature class features faster (ArcPy)
I added some performance metrics above. There are 1682 feature classes. Though on average counting only took 1/3 of the time of deleting. Granted the delete operations only processed feature classes with features. I'll try removing the count and just pass all feature classes to DeleteRows_management and see how that pans out. I'll also try sdetable using the truncate option.

This is great advise. I'll put some timers in for each operation and post the results. At least from the feedback so far it sounds like i'm using the appropriate ArcPy API methods. I'm still learning the ArcPy API so I was concerned there was some other method I should be using.
