[OpenLayers-Users] Bing Zoom Layer and Google Zoom Layer aligning

While working with Bing and OSM (or any XYZ) I experienced a problem,
that OSM would be fooled by Bing when the latter is the base layer.

So, if Bing itself is right but other XYZ layers are wrong on top of
if, my solution is to set the 'serverResolutions' option on all XYZ
layers, so that the 'getXYZ' computation would do longer depend on the
baseLayer's current zoom.
