[Proj] Polyhedric projection

Hi all,

I'm working with a large bunch of maps of Indonesia, dating from the 
Dutch colonial period (1850-1946). Quite a few are in the so-called 
"polyhedral" projection, a simple projection that fits the globe locally 
for each separate map sheet. Works fine for a few sheets, but for larger 
surfaces it is impossible to generate a fitting map. Has anyone worked 
with this projection? Is it possible to generate a correct global map 
using proj?


See this passage in Snyder's book:
