Dear All,

My colleague installed postgis 1.3 recently. He then inserted some KML 
data using (GDAL) ogr2ogr. This gets loaded in a table which has it's SRID
set to 32767.

In the 1.3 version of the spatial_ref_sys table, SRID=32767 is defined as a
longlat projection.

In MY 1.2 version of spatial_ref_sys, SRID=32767 is defined as a UTM
zone 42N projection (WGS84). I use SRID=4326 for longlat projection,
which has worked fine until now (I export features as KML for Google Earth).

Is this something I have to worry about (esp. when upgrading)?
