I did forget one other important thing that was dropped from proj in going to 
libproj4; the reference to a secondary source of file of files of projection 

That was a data base operation and did not belong as part of the basic 
projection operation.  Besides it was a neverending headache with users 
installing proj on other systems and not setting up the external global 
stuff.  I got more "calls" on that problem than anything else.

The +no_defs option has absolutely no meaning.  *ALL* specification 
information comes through the initialization array of proj_init or the 
runline of lproj.  I can't remember what the reference of external data file 
material was.

The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.
