comment GDAL2Tiles: MapTiles from BSB/KAP are Switched
As you say, the .bsb file is a reference file. It is quite common for the bsb charts to have multiple 'panels'. One .kap file for each panel and one bsb for the whole 'chart'. I think it is doubtful that gdal will ever use the .bsb file as it is primarily concerned with imagery, but then again it is kind of like a vrt...kind of. so maybe someday.

comment How do I write XML metadata with Python?
If you decide to go with a python library, I can definitely recommend lxml. I find it very easy to use and the Xpath functionality is great. lxml.de/tutorial.html

comment How to georeference a LANDSAT scene in QGIS 1.8?
Hi, It sounds to me like you need to set the CRS in the properties of the georeferencing window before creating the projected image. From the 'Settings' drop-down go to 'Transformation Settings' and set the 'Target SRS' to what you need. I am pretty sure you can georeference the image in either wgs84 or in your local projection. Hope that helps :)
