How do you think I got involved with NTv2?

I never heard of NTv2 before because I have not been involved with datum 

The bizarre material in pj_gridinfo.c meant that I had to research it out and 
try to get the whole story.  Or, at least, a bit more.

On a previous email I meant *binary* data transfer between different CPU's is 
a problem.

Some other material surfaced that shows that the NTv2 material much more 
whacky than just the positive west longitude.  It has to be the product of 
the McKenzie brother's R&D company.

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