REAL FUNCTION sla_RVGALC (R2000, D2000)

*
* Velocity component in a given direction due to the rotation
* of the Galaxy (single precision)
*
* Given:
* R2000,D2000 real J2000.0 mean RA,Dec (radians)
*
* Result:
* Component of dynamical LSR motion in direction R2000,D2000 (km/s)
*
* Sign convention:
* The result is +ve when the dynamical LSR is receding from the
* given point on the sky.
*
* Note: The Local Standard of Rest used here is a point in the
* vicinity of the Sun which is in a circular orbit around
* the Galactic centre. Sometimes called the "dynamical" LSR,
* it is not to be confused with a "kinematical" LSR, which
* is the mean standard of rest of star catalogues or stellar
* populations.
*
* Reference: The orbital speed of 220 km/s used here comes from
* Kerr & Lynden-Bell (1986), MNRAS, 221, p1023.
*
* Called:
* sla_CS2C, sla_VDV
