last week I had a small irc-chat with Frank in which he offered (uh, at 
least that was what I understood :-)  ), to add a -qgis option to the 
epsg_tr.py script he uses to generate epgs/paramater lists (when he 
finds some time):

I had a look myself in the original epgs.mdb, but fail to understand 
that interface..

I think it will be usefull to have one source for all osgeo-related 
epgs/projection-stuff. So really like the idea of using the epsg_tr.py 
script for qgis also!

see https://trac.osgeo.org/qgis/ticket/1035 if you want to pick this 
taks up
