r.proj - I wish!

I put out a hopeful call some time earlier about the urgent need for an "R. 
PROJ" similar to v.proj which would enable rasters to be re-projected 
between different databases.

There was not much reaction at the time. Maybe there will be now. I have 
many (too many) rasters in geographic which I would prefer to have in 
lambert conformal (since it looks so much more sensible for output etc). 
Since v.proj works so well, I find it hard to understand why a raster GIS 
like Grass does not have an r.proj.

Is there anyone out there, with an "r.proj" who would like to share it with 

There must be at least one other person besides me who would find it useful 
(in my case ESSENTIAL).

By the way, despite the inevitable wish lists for Grass ( and I would have 
some too), in many ways Grass is brilliantly functional for raster 
modelling which is what interests me. So. Well done!
