[Qgis-developer] To be (or not to be) less restrictive on
lists at borysjurgiel.pl

Last days we made really huge progress improving CRS handling. One of the
changes was JEF's less restrictive CRS interpreting:
http://trac.osgeo.org/qgis/changeset/15361 . If nobody disagree, I'd propose
to extend it also for the +towgs84 parameter.
In the resources/srs.db we have added a number of CRSes in both versions: one
with +towgs because of reprojection accuracy and one without because of
compatibility with layers produced by most software. For example:
epsg 2180 and 42180.
It would be much simpler for users if we could keep the full projStrings (with
the parameter) only and Qgis was able to recognize layers with missing
parameter as them. We would be also able to remove the odd CRSes and decrease
the difference between our crs database and the original proj4 one.
