[Tilecache] Projecting with a different SRS

In your tilecache.cfg you can pass a parameter like:

projection=+proj=merc +k=1.0 +datum=WGS84 +over +units=m

which will override the projection in the mapnik XML and reproject  
your data to that projection.

Or you can do as it sounds like you've done and just change the proj4  
code in your original XML.

Either way the only other step needed to fetch projected tiles through  
TileCache should be to set the proper extents in OpenLayers.

I'm not clear on the smartest way to do this but in my tilecache.cfg I  

projection= +proj=stere +lat_0=-90 +lat_ts=-71 +lon_0=0 +k=1 +x_0=0  
+y_0=0 +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +units=m +no_defs

the bbox which nests inside the maxextent specified in the OpenLayers  
map options that read:
projection: new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:3031") ,
maxExtent: new OpenLayers.Bounds(-196813697.178490, -100120989.481879,  

then call map.zoomToMaxExtent(); somewhere lower in the page and you  
should be rendering projected tiles of your data in OpenLayers.
