Package created, git repo pushed to alioth.

I'm a bit unsure license-wise. README talks about 
| OSTN02 transformation data is freely available but remains Crown Copyright (C) 2002
my impression is that there are some of those data included; the
license I found on the http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk site also
doesn't make me completely happy at first glance:

Files: *
Comment: various files in the source tarball seem to include OSTN02/OSGM02 data
Copyright: 2002, Crown Copyright
License: other
 Copyright and any database right or other intellectual property right in the
 OSTN02 data available from this site, however it is made available, belongs to
 Ordnance Survey (and is therefore Crown copyright). Copyright and any database
 right or other intellectual property right in OSGM02 data available from this
 site, however it is made available, belongs jointly to Ordnance Survey,
 Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland (and is protected by Crown copyright) and
 Ordnance Survey Ireland.
 .
 Ordnance Survey and (where relevant) Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland and
 Ordnance Survey Ireland permit users to copy or incorporate copyrighted
 material from both OSTN02, the OSi/OSNI polynomial transformation, or OSGM02
 either onto their own PCs or into their software. However, this is dependant
 on the appropriate copyright notice being displayed in the software. The
 appropriate notices are '© Ordnance Survey Ireland, 2002' or '© Crown
 copyright 2002. All rights reserved.' as applicable. The appropriate mapping
 agency logo must also appear next to the copyright notice. Details of mapping
 agency logos are found in the style guides available on the web site.

* "copy or incorporate" -> modify? distribute?
* logos?


In short: reviews/comments (esp. from someone more familiar with
British Crown Copyright) welcome!

Cheers,
gregor
