To the best of my knowledge we didn't really support RSO before.

Would it make sense to have this "gamma" value as an argument to
omerc that defaults to whatever it used to be, but that could
be set to produce the RSO projection?

In any event, if you provide the PJ_rso.c I would be willing to
incorporate it into PROJ.4, but it would be best if Gerald first
decided how it should be handled in libproj4.  I would want to
ensure that it is done the same way in PROJ, so that when I ditch
all my projection code and plug in libproj4 as the backend there won't
be an incompatible change in how RSO is handled for users.

Submitting the suggested change in Bugzilla would be a good start.
