Comment (by robe):

 Okay that answers that question.  That's why I put it in the future.  I
 unlike Mark don't have quite a sense of urgency.  Still experimenting with
 what functions each tool taps into, so my objective is to see how far
 geography can go without requiring change to underlying desktop/web tools.

 Hmm I think we need an ST_Transform (which returns a geometry).  But yes I
 was thinking a half-assed extent :).
