Ahhh!  Sigh,  Deja vu all over again.  I thought we beat this dead horse and 
Dosier several years ago.

It seems worthless to expand the longitudinal accuracy of the projection as 
long as the scale error and usefulness also goes to hell at the same time.  
The useful range for the tmerc is in the immediate vicinity of the central 
meridian so why bother worrying about extending computational accuracy in the 
longitudinal direction?

Enough is enough.  Please.
