Just as an aside from the original author of proj.4:  prime meridian has no place
proj.4.  Any offsets in longitude due to variations in coordinate system "prime
meridian" should be taken care of externally with adjustments to "lon_0"

My probem is that I view the projections and their math as pristene entities  and
not disturbed with regtional egos and their arbitrary orientations of coordinate

I know my advice will be ignored but I could not resist expressing my displeasure
with the inclusion of PM code within the proj.4 library.  PMS, if you will.
