Seems like the following works

    geotifcp -g a.tif b.tif c.tif

creating an extra file c.tif. What a shame. Now, to figure out if I
can apply this blessed proj info to 100 files in one shot or not, and
then delete 100 old files.

Also, I wish these darned commands were named consistently. When I see
`geotifcp` I think of its analog as `geotifls`, and when I see
`listgeo` I think of its analog as `copygeo`. What a shame its not so.
