zoom to extent which crosses 180

Hello All,

I'm using the web mercator projection and wrapAround180 option to provide seamless panning across the antimeridian.  I would like to set the extent of the map to an area which in geographic coordinates would cross the antimeridian, e.g.

var bbox = new esri.geometry.Extent(175.0,15.0,-175.0,25.0, new esri.SpatialReference({ wkid:4326 }));

However this does not work, centering instead on central Africa and setting the zoom level to the maximum.

Can someone please suggest the appropriate way to do this?
