Description

When adding a layer in QGIS that has an explicit CRS that doesn't match anything in the internal QGIS database, then a custom CRS is added, but this has no name.

The new "select CRS" dialog just filters names and official codes (like EPSG) not internal codes.

So, it would be highly valuable to allow the user enter a proper name for custom CRS as they are added to the internal DB by QGIS.
