[OpenLayers-Dev] EPSG:41001

Ya, even while using the new OpenLayers.Map 41001 constructor example I
still wondering why my getURL method still receiving bounds in long lat
and in the x-y ratio 1-1 for each tile. I was assuming I would get
bounds in the 41001 format.

EPSG:41001 is not in degrees, it is in meters.
http://trac.openlayers.org/wiki/FrequentlyAskedQuestions#Projections has
useful extent/resolution for the whole world in that projection.
