So, what would be useful to do now?

I'm running a tiles at home client, so could modify my version so it produced
'bezierified' ways, but I'm not sure that would be a good thing to do as it
stands. (would that be considered pollution!)

Do you want to see more examples? I can certainly generate the tiles but
don't have anywhere to host them so people could have a look....

Current examples at: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/User:Dotbaz

Cheers .Baz
