[gdal-dev] Does gdal support rotated pole projections?

Dear All,

Some climate projection data uses a rotated pole projection for gridded 
data.  Is there any way in which I can get GDAL to work with this data? 
In particular I would like to burn vector data from other projections 
into this grid using gdal_rasterize.

Using Google I find posts of similar problems in several forums. It 
appears that proj.4 uses "proj=ob_tran, etc" but GDAL does not support 

Thanks, Alex
