[MS4W-Users] Missing EPSG:3785 Spherical mercator in 3.0 Beta 7

Yet another newbie question.
I need to display the typical shorelines files, which apparently have
Spherical Mercator EPSG:3785 projection. And with an entry as
<3785> +proj=merc +a=6378137 +b=6378137 +lat_ts=0.0 +lon_0=0.0 +x_0=0.0
+y_0=0 +k=1.0 +units=m +nadgrids=@null
In the epsg everything works well.

The file does not contain this, nor EPSG codes 3763-9999 correctly. Is
there a reason, or just a mistake when producing that version (Beta 7)?
Or, should I use something different? 

Reason for asking is that I want to make my mapfiles compatible with
future releases of ms4w.
