I found that no module in GRASS uses the functions from this file
(datum.c), which is good news, as i am free to redesign/rename them.

I wrote some more functions for the coorcnv lib for datum shift and to
support a central datum.table (no hardcoded values for map datums, user
may add own datums, like the ellips.table), which will make writing an
enhanced version of m.datum.shift trivial.

Most of the modules should work as far as i can say from the code.

I hope i can get the library right in some days, but the problem is that
many modules must be changed (and the user must give another parameter
to them), this is too much work for me alone. If someone is interested,
please contact me.
