Hi all.
Standard EPSG code for Italian projections (3003 and 3004) do not 
include datum; as a result, reprojection is always wrong by about 100 m. 
Can we add 4 more projection definition to our SRS database?
It should  only be added the +towgs84 parameter so that we'll have:

3003 corrected, mainland: same as 3003, with

3004 corrected, mainland: same as 3004, with

3003 corrected, Sardinia: same as 3003, with

3004 corrected, Sicily:  same as 3004, with

In GRASS this has been solved by a similar approach:
I think this can be done now, as it does not impact anything else, and 
it would make life a lot easier for Italian users (remember, the second 
largest QGIS user community!).

Thanks a lot.
