Not that I'm aware of. The last significant work in that area of OSR dates back
to more than 6 years ago.

>From what I see from the code, adding new projections should be doable, but as
this is rather a boring task, it would help if you could identify the
projections methods that are the most common. Are you trying to be interoperable
with another software, or is it just GDAL/GDAL interoperability ? Having
GDAL/GDAL interoperability is easy, but making sure it works properly with other
software is less obvious.
