please add +towgs parameters

Standard EPSG code for Italian projections (3003 and 3004) do not include datum; as a result, reprojection is always wrong by about 100 m. Can we add 4 more projection definition to our SRS database?
It should only be added the +towgs84 parameter so that we'll have:
3003 corrected, mainland: same as 3003, with
3004 corrected, mainland: same as 3004, with
3003 corrected, Sardinia: same as 3003, with
3004 corrected, Sicily: same as 3004, with
In GRASS this has been solved by a similar approach:
I think this can be done now, as it does not impact anything else, and it would make life a lot easier for Italian users (remember, the second largest QGIS user community!).

New custom codes should be in the 32,768-100,000 range; 39031, 39032, 39041, 39042 should be ok.

Italy is not the only case, there are obviously others (in my case I'm referring to Portugal).
My suggestion is to implement this #1908 and then just maintain the list of datum association (3 and 7 parameters transformation).
Missing/correct definitions for Portugal
