#1230: _ST_BestSRID should not return negative SRID values
 Reporter:  strk     |       Owner:  pramsey      
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  high     |   Milestone:  PostGIS 2.0.0
Component:  postgis  |     Version:  trunk        
 Keywords:           |  

Comment(by strk):

 Another option (the option above doesn't help in engaging the Proj4 cache
 objects) is to define a range of SRID reserved for private use (say, in
 the range 910000-919999) and use those, rather than negative ones. If we
 go with the private range, we should somehow make it clear, maybe adding
 records in the spatial_ref_sys table to prevent others from installin
 things there.
