[GRASS-dev] IAU to wkt C code (converted from Trent Hare's Python code)

OK had a time to look at


Removing the WKT files iau2000.csv & iau2009.csv will stop the wizard 
new location based on these IAU files to work. These files are not in 
GDAL yet and they are parsed by the New Location wizard on selection of 
the IAU-based option. Getting those files in GDAL is rather an issue as 
yet, I might have time to do that in the near future (i.e. coming 
months), but not in the coming weeks. Please could you restore those 
files. Thank you, Yann
