[Qgis-developer] Help with projections

Hi Paolo,

I think it would be worth to have better projection choice support in 
QGIS. It is really hard to select proper projections, esp. for new 
users. We also lack some useful worldwide projections in our proj4 database.

One could have a d3.js based preview for world-wide projections.

Would be a good thing for a GSOC project, I think.
