[OSM-dev] Support for multiple layers on the tiles at home server

InformationFreeway now has the cycle and maplink layers available.

I've hacked together a rough rules file for the cycle layer at level 12.
Generally the streets are de-emphasised and the cycleways and footpaths
drawn bolder.

It's only been done for zoom level 12 at the moment and just a few tiles in
the south east of England have been rendered just to give a feel for the

Surrey Hills, between Guildford and Dorking:

NR21 between Crawley and Tunbridge Wells:

More NR21 between Heathfield and Eastbourne:

Between Haslemere and Petworth:

Comments and suggestions are welcome.
