I tried the predefined instance of the latest Proj version, 4.8.0, like this (where
the -f stuff just gives more decimals):
>proj +init=epsg:29872 -f "%.3f"
This is nearly the same as Oscar van Vlijmen's result, except for about 5 millimeters.
I could also reproduce the EPSG Note 7-2 example, but their result had only centimeter resolution,
so that didn't tell me whether Proj.4 or Oscar's software is best. (But my guess is that Oscar's is best.)
