[Mapnik-users] Mercator Projections on WMS Maps?

I'm working on using Mapnik as a WMS server that serves Mercator-projected
maps. I've hit quite a few snags: it doesn't seem like you can define a
projection like mercator in worldMapFactory.py (since you can't define a Map
object) and the shapefiles I'm working with (the world shapefiles from
http://www.cipotato.org/diva/data/MoreData.htm ) have a SRS WKT undefined
(output of ogrinfo http://dpaste.com/72758/ ). Reprojecting those shapefiles
with ogr2ogr has produced maps that consist of a single dot. I'm puzzled.
Does anyone have this working? I'd be interested to learn how it happens.
Oh, also: I'm doing this on a mod_python server for WMS - is there any
interest for that? Ha, and another also: if there are any Mapnik experts
available for hire, let me know: we're (developmentseed) looking for someone
to help out some very interesting projects.
