Provide access to the names of Projected and Geographic coordinate systems

Description

The name of an individual projection is available from an initialized GeoProjection object, but there is not an easy way to get a list of all NAD83 projections, for example.

I should clarify that names are only provided for Projected Coordinate Systems, as provided by the GDAL csv file. The Geographic coordinate systems are generally shared by multiple Projected coordinate systems, and their names are not provided within the csv file.

Projection names are loaded from a GDAL-provided csv file, and as such, should always be up-to-date with each GDAL update.

Names can be fetched individually, by the standard enumerations (e.g. tkNad83Projection or tkWgs84Projection), or by using any integer that is a valid SRID (Spatial Reference Identifier).

Additionally, a list of names can be returned, either by individual groups (NAD83 and/or WGS84), or in its entirety, containing all Projected and Geographic coordinate system names (over 4000 entries).
