Just a quick question, is it possible to change the projection of the shape file as you are saving it to the database so you don't need to apply the conversion to a different projection each time you load the shape file information from the database?

To do things like that, I use ogr2ogr from the GDAL/FWTools package prior to adding it to the database.
