#799: Patch for casting geometry to geography
 Reporter:  smarshall    |       Owner:  pramsey      
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  medium       |   Milestone:  PostGIS 1.5.4
Component:  postgis      |     Version:  1.5.X

Comment(by pramsey):

 Should note that the idea of auto-normalizing (and auto-projecting)
 coordinates while casting to geography was explicitly rejected by folks
 during the initial development. This issue should be discussed on postgis-
 devel before being applied.
