In Slovak and Czech republic, we are mostly using S-JTSK East/North
projection, which is not standardized by any official authority (EPSG,
..) We use ESRI code 102067 for that.
This projection was removed in 1.7.4 (was in 1.7.3 as EPSG:102067).
It seems, that it was done in 42e02d82c05b4da370be77ef71345ba62457cc66
as the result of #4652.

If we want to clean EPSG database, the solution could be to add this
projection under some other authority (ESRI or OSGEO ..).
It is essential, because currently we are not able to load any WMS layer
in that projection, which is issue affecting all CzechoSlovak users
(QGIS is not able to correctly load WMS layer in unknown projection).

spatialreference.org is currently down. Here are projection parameters:

+proj=krovak +lat_0=49.5 +lon_0=24.83333333333333
+alpha=30.28813975277778 +k=0.9999 +x_0=0 +y_0=0 +ellps=bessel +units=m
