[OSRS-PROJ] <Update>:Initial step ready for testing

Hello All,

In response to Paul's message, my initial thought would be that it would be 
best to
crate a branch for this in the CVS for Proj4. This is the way we do this 
kind of thing in
my company, and it makes the management easy. It definitely makes it easy 
to check for differences
and such, and once the work is complete and tested, it can easily be merged 
into the main branch
by the maintainer. This also allows the maintainer to make changes in the 
main branch that do not get lost
in the final merge.

I don't have any experience at this time with the Proj4 or 
remotesensing.org CVS conventions,
so I don't know if this is a reasonable approach in the circumstances.

Of course, Frank Warmerdam must be in agreement (and maybe create the 
inital brnaching).
