Well the way it is is consistent with how it worked before. If the datum
information was complete, g.proj did what you told it, if not it prompted
for more info. Now if you use the -i flag you can still get this old
behaviour, or if you specify datumtrans=xxx
I can see logic in datumtrans=-1 always listing even if there is just one
option, but I still think the current way is better as it is most
consistent with pre-existing behaviour... :/ If you want it to always list
anyway you can use the -t "force transformation selection" flag?
Not sure what's best really
