There's no plans to use proj 7's built in auto grid download. This
isn't designed for GUI applications like QGIS -- if we did, we'd get
UI hangs all over the place while QGIS is trying to transform
coordinates, and proj blocks and waits for the download to occur.

What we should instead do is just fire up a background task on first
install to download ALL THE GRIDS FOR EVERYWHERE form the proj CDN and
install them locally. Problem solved.... FOREVER! ;)
