The magic incantation is as follows.
+proj=merc +a=6378137 +b=6378137 +lat_ts=0.0 +lon_0=0.0
+x_0=0.0 +y_0=0 +k=1.0 +units=m +nadgrids=@null

I've given up on the DD viewBox. I want to go to a pixel based coord system so the tiles line up correctly. Am I be able to project some map data from my postGIS database into Google's projection, and then either scale or transform it with relative ease? I know this is against Google's policy, but if I can get it to work, I'll seek permission later.
