[OpenLayers-Users] Pattern for overlaying KML data on Google Map

Is there a standard pattern for creating a map with both a Google Maps
layer and a regular KML file, so that they overlay correctly? My first
attempt simply added both layers in with no particular reprojection, and
while this makes both visible and *sort of* in the same reference
system, the KML file "drifts" when I pan the map vertically.
I realize that there are a fair number of messages about this kind of
thing, but I'm finding it a bit of work to figure out *exactly* how this
should be done. Or is it even possible? Do you have to reproject the
KML file to match the GM projection?
As far as I see there is no OpenLayers example page for doing this.
Seems like this would be a common use case - perhaps it would be worth
