Comment(by hamish):

 For keeping track of the EPSG code used to create the location, try r49298
 in trunk.

 the wxPy location wizard (ie 'g.proj -c') should now save a
 PERMANENT/PROJ_EPSG file in locations created by epsg code, and 'g.proj
 -p|-g' will display it.

 '''NOTE''': The EPSG code is preserved for historical metadata interest
 only; the contents of this file are not used by pj_*() routines at all.
 The PROJ_INFO file contains the active projection parameters; to avoid
 conflicts of consistency this term should not be mixed into that file or
 used in its place. (e.g. the epsg code typically does not define datum
 transform parameters, or in the case of current PROJ 4.7.1svn's copy it
 can contain incorrect datum transform terms)
