Hi Frank, firstly thanks for your timely response.

Yeah, I was unsure which would be best -
often "+datum=fred +ellps=fred" seem to go
comfortably together but OSGB36 is 
technically the better name.  I'll alter our
patches accordingly to match what'll be there
in forthcoming proj releases.  Thanks!

Thanks again and Best Regards,
