Re: [netcdf-java] Writing unsigned data to attributes

Thanks for that.

Now that I know how it works, I'm happy with the current situation. But I was 
hoping I could just promote the data type of the fill value for unsigned 
variables - that way I could treat valid ranges and fill values the same way. 
That is, ideally I'd like to do this:

    byte Band1(y, x);
       Band1:_Unsigned = "true";
       Band1:_FillValue = 255s; // short

    byte Band2(y, x);
       Band2:_Unsigned = "true";
       Band2:valid_range = 0s, 254s; // short

But I suspect that wouldn't be backwards-compatible with existing code.
