What is the plan for how these bits are used?

Primarily to produce the proj-datumgrid archives alongside proj.

It seems obvious to me that they should be released with version numbers
and enough of a packaging system that they can install into
${prefix}/share/proj/? or something, so that packaging systems can make
packages (one, separate?), for installation by use by end users.

For now the proj build system is still expected to install the gridshift
files. This could possibly be separated in the future.

But I suspect this bias to packaging may be less obvious to those who
are close to proj, especially if they themselves always run proj from

Kind Regards,
