I'm not convinced that grid shift files belong in the source tree. Some
of the ones that are there were carried over from the 90's and others
were added by folks other than me.

Today I was considering having grid shift files in a directory in
subversion that is parallel to the source tree, and in fact I just
moved the old postscript files out parallel to the source code

However, since the files are not generally revised, are large,
binary and not "owned" by PROJ.4 I'm not convinced they belong in
subversion at all.
