A reminder here: I only speak for libproj4. Proj was originally my name
for the projection system prior to its adoption into software like cs2cs and
other material associated with maptools.
The libproj4 distribution from my site contains an application program called
lproj ("l" for limited because the Tchebychev approximation code had been
removed from proj). lproj runs almost identically with my older proj and
neither product had/have anything related to datum control/conversions and
some other manipulations unrelated to projections.
The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.
