will it fail gracefully if files arn't present?

Can you make it only render streets at zoom => 11 or whatever it is?
Also, maybe do the api call on a slightly bigger bounding box?

I'm slightly worried about maintaining multiple sets of SQL etc but I
suppose if the php is there we can rework it in to ruby and use the API,
and can use GD/magick in exactly the same way too.

have fun,
