>Re:  PHP/GD

Forgot to say....

People might want to evaluate the speed of PHP/GD (with unoptimised
database queries) at

http://www.free-map.org.uk

Try zooming out one level from the default level, that's the slowest zoom
level; look at the number of paths to get an idea of OSM acceptibility or
not, given that the database in OSM is probably more optimised than mine
:-)

I guess Ruby/GD would be similar speed - is Ruby generally regarded as
slower than PHP? Know everything is an object but I haven't heard anything
to this effect...
