 I guess its too late to squeeze this in for 1.5.0?  But I think we really
 need an Extent function for Geography.

 Just noticed the Add Datastore feature doesn't work out of the box with
 geography because its trying to call Extent on it (well that's the
 complaint I get out of the bat).  I don't use that mode much anyway so I
 personally don't care aside from the effect on newbie user experience.

 Which brings up the other question that we really need to get the word out
 with 3rd party tools to switch to using the ST_ version of the functions
 if we hope to ever bury them.  I guess that is a story for another day.
