The programmers should stop reading now, this is a farmer's son recipe for doing
what you want with something that already exists.

- Use gdaltindex for sending the bounding box of your image into a shapefile
- Use ogr2ogr with s_srs and t_srs and reproject the shapefile into the system
you are interested in.
- Use ogrinfo for listing the extents of the reprojected shapefile.
