cheers, this will be most useful.

for the sake of satisfying the issues of the parallel licensing thread,
it must be asked under which (if any) licensing terms you post this code
beyond the original NGS public terms.

I would also ask, if the intention of posting this code to the PROJ.4
FAQ is to create a reference implementation of the inv. geodesic "gold
standard" in C/Python/Javascript/LEGO lang/etc. for the greater good
of humanity (or to at least slow down the propagation of poorer methods,
and their results), then should Pittman's version be pursued next?
