Some people have looked into it. I'm not one of them, and I don't
remember hearing any specific information back on what the resolution
was. I doubt that there would be much in the way of changes: the VE
Layer is most likely easily adapted, and the change is likely just a
change in names, not in functionality, but I'm not sure.
The code to look at is OpenLayers.Layer.VirtualEarth.
