[gradsusr] templating netcdf files over spatial regions

File templating or aggregation over spatial dimensions is not  
supported in GrADS. Also, there is no netcdf interface for station  
data. What you have done, to describe each station file as a grid with  
an X/Y dimension size of 1, is the best way to load this data into  
GrADS. The only way to do what you want is to write a stand-alone  
program that opens your netcdf files and rewrites the data into the  
binary station data format that GrADS can read.
