I can write an export-to-Illustrator or EPS function, if it'd be useful...?

A later version of Potlatch, the Flash editor I'm working on, will
have the opportunity to use a tiled background in a different
projection. In other words, rather than having Mercator-projected
Landsat tiles, you'll be able to use OSGB New Popular Edition (or
whatever). But this won't be in the first release.
To be honest it's (sadly) not a great concern at present as we don't
really have many _orthorectified_ out-of-copyright maps.
