My first reaction to the thread was to simply add the basic transformation 
matrix to the xy side of the proj system but after looking at


I think the more general affine matrix would be a better final solution.

+xform=[comma separated array of 4 or 6 real numbers]

4 for transform, 6 for affine.

Note that cos/sin values must be precomputed.

I'm somewhat kidding about the affine. ;-)
