Thanks, the documentation from Linz has proven very helpful the past 
years. Almost all transit agencies in Baden-Wuerttemberg use EFA, so our 
own hacks depend on the EFA API, too – see for instance <http://h.fs-et.de>

Yep, but my problem is a different one – I'm currently looking at the 
DIVA2DIVA format used by DIVA (which in turn feeds EFA at some point), 
and the internal coordinate system can't be bypassed that way ;)
