[OSRS-PROJ] geod API?

I have to admit that when I put *geod* into PROJ.4 it was kind of a
item. Lot'sa people wanted geodesic distances to I included it. The
used is not very good but good to a cm or two at most large distances.
the algorithm is a horror mathematically.
I recommend the geodesic procedure available from the Nat'l Geodetic Survey
as I believe it to be more accurate and certainly cleaner mathematically
(although it is recursive). They have a FORTRAN version which very cleanly
converts to C with f2c.
