Bug Description

The HEK stores a lot of F/E information obtained from data taken along the Earth-Sun line. We lack the ability at present to re-project F/E information obtained from data taken along the Earth-Sun line onto images of the Sun taken from STEREO. In this case it might be worthwhile to tell the user via a growl notification that we F/Es shown on STEREO data are not worth anything. Another option might be to switch off the HEK selector entirely, although that would mean keeping a track of the state of the selector when the user switches back and forth from showing STEREO data.

I am unaware at present if the HEK stores F/E data taken from the STEREO points of view.

Two options: either warn the user, or do the reprojection. The second option is complex to implement (the best hope for this is some future version of SunPy). Also, no-one has complained about this so far.
