The lift symbol thing only works because the node in the lift line are
more or less equally spaced and far apart. But if you have a one way
street which goes around a tight corner, you'd print a arrow symbol for
every node in that path and they would overlap. So thats no solution.

I agree that oneway arrows should be repeated, but I haven't found a
good solution yet. The current way of having the symbols only at
beginning and end is suboptimal, but at least it doesn't interfere with
street name (which are in the middle) too much.
