Jeff - It has already asked on this list. I am yet to get a conclusive

I guess it is not as clear cut as it seems. I would have also thought that
with the Quantum training session the other day, we would have our own proj4
definitions sorted out. No?

Maybe you should ask this question on the Proj mailing list 
(http://lists.maptools.org/mailman/listinfo/proj), I bet that is where 
you'll find help.
