any system that operates on ellipsoid can be suuported
actually it is a PE-90 implementation (Parameters of the Earth 1990)
however the parameters of ellipsoids of PE-90 andwgs-84 are equal
in the end you can define your own constants (except pi)

vincenty is another bessel derived method
it is actually very ancient (and less accurate than mine)
however i borrowed some ideas from there
