 I need to project maps in South Africa, where we use the Hartebeesthoek
 projections. These are based on transverse mercator south orientated.

 These projections are not supported, making it impossible for me to carry
 out any measurements etc. This effectively makes the application useless
 in most cases where such projections are needed.

 It appears to be related to the fact that proj4 lacks support for south
 orientated projections.

 Is there some way around this? Is there a solution using PostGIS, perhaps?
 If so, it should be highlighted for new users, with clear instructions on
 how to implement it.
