#1234: _ST_BestSRID making up utm zone 61
 Reporter:  strk     |       Owner:  pramsey      
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  medium   |   Milestone:  PostGIS 2.0.0
Component:  postgis  |     Version:  trunk        
 Keywords:           |  
 _ST_BestSRID UTM zone computer returns zone=61 for corner cases (X on
 timeline). This was already the case before the switch to named SRIDs, but
 would better be addressed. With the named SRID switch, zone=61 would be
 interpreted by ST_Transform as a Lambert Azimuthal projection.

 Clamping the zone to be within the valid range should do, but a testcase
 would be important to have (currently missing).
