Whilst the GUI can handle the selection of which Coordinate Reference System the WMS server should return its image in, that selection is not propagated to the QGIS Map Canvas Projection.
This should be fixed so that layers with mixed source projections can still coexist on the same Map Canvas (in the correct positions!)
A possible fix is to abstract the Map Canvas projection to its own class, and it can handle requests to either change the Map Canvas projection, or ask the requestor to change its source projection to the existing Map Canvas projection.
Prefer this is fixed before 0.8, to avoid subtle projection hassles.
