I am not in vacation (but will be in few days), but still working on various 
subjects including PROJ.4, GDAL, PROJ4JS, OpenLayers, ...

I have replied to the ticket and await for a decision : the change is quite 
heavy on our side (not so on PROJ.4 side) cause our CRS catalogues (PROJ.4, 
PROJ4JS, ISO, etc ...) rely on 'glabsgm'. So, I will have, after changing if 
accepted PROJ.4 to modify them all.
