WMS GetFeatureInfo does reproject the featureMember geometry in GeoServer 2.5

Description

In releases prior to 2.5 if in run a WMS getFeatureInfo request using a projected coordinate system (in my case EPSG:2157), then the response geometry is also in that projected coordinate system. However, with the new getFeatureInfo engine introduced in release 2.5, the returned geometry is lat/long.

This has been discussed in this user group post:
http://osgeo-org.1560.x6.nabble.com/GeoServer-2-5-returns-GetFeatureInfo-featureMember-geometry-as-lat-long-rather-than-projected-tt5131739.html#none - http://osgeo-org.1560.x6.nabble.com/GeoServer-2-5-returns-GetFeatureInfo-featureMember-geometry-as-lat-long-rather-than-projected-tt5131739.html#none

I can get around this by reverting back to the old getFeatureInfo engine by adding this JVM startup parameter:

-Dorg.geoserver.wms.featureinfo.render.enabled=false

Example of the WMS request I'm making:

http://<server>:8080/geoserver/wms?SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.1.1&REQUEST=GetFeatureInfo&LAYERS=TownlandLayer&QUERY_LAYERS=TownlandLayer&STYLES=,,,&BBOX=618565.0,707446.2,620258.3,708216.1&FEATURE_COUNT=10&HEIGHT=582&WIDTH=1280&FORMAT=image%2Fpng&INFO_FORMAT=application/vnd.ogc.gml&SRS=EPSG:2157&X=587&Y=354

Here's a sample response from GeoServer 2.1 (good):

<p>I've tested this and it seems to work perfectly. Thanks for the effort in resolving this. For now I'll leave our production system on 2.5 with geoserver.wms.featureinfo.render.enabled set to False, and I'll pick the release up once it goes official.</p>
