[mapguide-users] Adding a new Coord Sys

Thanks! That worked great. I should've thought about it, but I figured the
server was the only thing that needed that information.
Now my second tricky question is about then using that coordinate system in
a map. I'm guessing the answer already, but you will have to use that
coordinate system manually and not set it through Autodesk Mapguide Studio
2008/2009? The Studio, I presume, is using the coordinate systems defined in
Mentor and not a list retrieved from the server? If so, my best bet would
just to use the SetResource agent call to modify the resource to use the
right coordinate system?
