Hi Maciej and others

if you are right, and there is concensus about removing the trailings 
zero's from the k/scalefactor, what would be the easiest way to do this?

Some possibilities I see:

- either write a small python procedure (just because I know there is 
some sqllite lib for python) which does some string-stuff with the 
parameter values in the tbl_srs table.
seems doable for me...

- (re)use the script that initially was used to build srs.db
If it excists, anybody has knowledge of this script?

- do some editing by hand
uhm, volunteers ;-)?

So my question:
1) SHOULD we remove the trailing zero's from the k-factors?

2) I think the python way is the easiest way to go, but if somebody has 
the initial script laying around, please sent it to me...
