[OSM-dev] Support for multiple layers on the tiles at home server
streetmap at blibbleblobble.co.uk

Previously, uploaded images had filenames of the form tile_z_x_y.png. That
interface is still valid.
Now, uploaded images can also maplint_z_x_y.png, or cycle_z_x_y.png depending
on what layer you want the tile to go into.
Previously, tiles were viewed using URLs of the form
http://dev.openstreetmap.org/~ojw/Tiles/tile.php/z/x/y.png. That interface
is still valid.
Now, tiles can also be viewed at
http://dev.openstreetmap.org/~ojw/Tiles/cycle.php/z/x/y.png. These new
layers are visible on the tile browser  and on informationfreeway .
This is just server API support, there isn't yet any content on the new layers
although hopefully someone will modify the tiles at home client to generate
cycle maps and debug maps to display there.
