A example show how coordstoLatLng should be used would be great. I am utterly confused about how to use it. I want to convert Geojson to polygon object.

Currently the documentation lacks any code about it.

Added GeoJSON coordsToLatLng option for dealing with GeoJSON that has non-WGS84 coords (thanks to @moonlite)

By default Leaflet assumes WGS84 coordinates when parsing GeoJSON. WGS84 is the standard coordinate system for this thing called the Global Positioning System. However, if your GeoJSON coordinates are of some other coordinate system you would need to convert them in order for them to be displayed correctly on the map. This is where the coordsToLatLng method comes in handy.

You can see how it is used in the Leaflet core.

@mourner I'll add this to the work I'm doing for the 1.0 documentation. Since 1.0 will make working with custom projections and spatial references easier I think we need to document this so people can use L.GeoJSON with custom projections.
