The great thing about the EPSG system is that you can add coordinate system
definitions as you need them.
You can use the OpenLayer's code for Spherical Mercator and add it to your
# Google / OpenLayers
<900913> +proj=merc +a=6378137 +b=6378137 +lat_ts=0.0 +lon_0=0.0 +x_0=0.0 +y_0=0
+k=1.0 +units=m +nadgrids=@null +no_defs
Or you can wait for the various software groups to get updated to the new EPSG
definitions which include the "official" code of 3785.
