It is my understanding that my mapfile's MAP-level PROJECTION setting is
that of the output projection, so I have set that one to "init=epsg:900913"
while the LAYER-level PROJECTION is the projection I wish to transform from,
in my case "init=epsg:4326".  My mapfile was created using Quantum GIS's
'export to mapserver' plugin which automatically generates a mapfile which
can then be edited.  The MAP-level EXTENT was likewise automatically
generated to be 479264.622425,5477205.119250,486387.071575,5480636.844750,
so they already seem to be in metre units instead of lat long degrees.  When
the WMS is tiled in my map browser over a Bing Map of the area, I see in the
URL that the SRS has been changed from 4326 to 900913 and the BBOX is
-13719529.331192,6352222.7966734,-13718306.33874,6353445.7891258.  Should I
change the automatically generated mapfile MAP-level EXTENT to 900913
