 > My only concern with this ticket is strk's comment that PROJ.4 trunk is
 still advertising itself as 4.7 - does this mean we have no other way of
 determining whether someone is using trunk at the moment other than
 checking for the existence of projects.h? Can we ask Frank to bump it to
 4.8 or 4.8SVN or similar? This would make me feel a lot more comfortable.

 It means that until a proj is release with a larger version number we'll
 treat it as if it was 4.7. Which just means we won't try to look for any
 new spheroid access API calls that happen to get added (they haven't yet).
 Which would be a shame, but at least on release everything would work, and
 in the meantime as Sandro notes everything works.
