Convert CONSUS Albers to WGS84

This is a simple function to convert an X/Y location, in meters, to a latitude/longitude location. The transformation assumes the X/Y location is in a CONSUS Albers NAD83 (EPSG: 5070).

This is a Python translation of the C code by Michael G. Duda. Accuracy seems to be ~0.1 meter with accuracy lessening to northern latitudes with ~1 meter accuracy at the Canadian Border.
