Comment (by hamish):

 just trying it out.. almost there.

  * for hardcoded "noask" values could the text boxes be greyed out? (e.g.
 NZMG, Lat/Lon's +lat_0,+lon_0 [could that 0,0 for LL just be removed from

  * "datum :" does not get set in resulting PROJ_INFO file (#784) if
 selecting terms manually. This was fixed for a short time last week & then
 broke again a few days ago. (try running `g.region -p`) Creation using
 EPSG code works.

  * Expand boolean from N/Y to No/Yes. e.g. UTM Southern Hemisphere
 question the default is "N" which can also be "North". Better yet: figure
 out how to have it be 'Hemisphere: North|South'

  * For UTM, could 1-60 pulldown list be a constrained value spinbox

  * Could datum transform list selection popup be integrated into the
 wizard [<Back] [Fwd>] pages, or at least be given the same window height x
 width? It seems a bit out of place. Better yet: could it have a radio
 button list like the Tcl/Tk version (try EPSG:27200). Also same as the Tcl
 version it should have a "continue without" option as well.

  * on the "Specify geodetic datum" page, could the Description column be
 made a bit wider by default? it's the long string and ellipsoid is the
 short one.

  * "Choose EPSG code" search is still a bit weird (need to reload to start
 a new search)
