The ability of one algorithm to repeat a transformation within a certain
level of accuracy to another algorithm is a function of the distance from
the projection origin.
Your question is likely impossible to answer until both algorithms are at
hand and one does a "sensitivity analysis." By that time, the question is
only academic anyway since you do have the exactly proper algorithm to
transform whatever it is at hand.

What is the accuracy? I need circa 1m. Is it possible if I use the 'stere'
projection for Polish Roussilhe grid?

Do you need any help with the Polish papers?
Besides: I've got 2 *.xls calculators for GPS to "1965" grid conversion
based somewhat on Gauss-Kruger (I don't quite get it how). Maybe you could
make some use of them?

Roger that.
