Hi Nick,

Of course you can. agg_renderer renders into memory buffer and you  
can do whatever you like with it (buffer).
I can look into modifying image writers to work with any output  
streams, which what you're after??
Perhaps, it is more for mapnik-devel and there is trac.mapnik.org  
also. Don't hesitate to submit a feature  request .
