#785: wx location wizard: doesn't show all datum transform opts

 Priority:  major   |   Milestone:  6.4.0

 If I create a new location with the wx loc'n wizard (e.g. proj=nzmg) on
 the "Specify geodetic datum" page if I choose the nzgd49 datum I only see
 two options in the lower pane. There should be three: 3-term, 7-term, and
 NTv2 grid file. I assume the 3-term is the one that's missing but there
 isn't enough info there for the user to know for sure. (add +proj terms as
 a second\n description line or tooltip?)

 for wgs84 it is worse, you get the full list of transform params but no
 +towgs84=0,0,0 option.

 lib/gis/datum.table ignored?

 (also it would be nice if the search tools checked the Code column as well
 as the long description, and clicking on the magnifying glass icon
 executed the search)
