Been talked about a lot with great enthusiasm but nothing's been  
implemented, so I guess it's time to move the discussion over to dev  
in preparation for actually doing something.

Easy places to start:

- Oliver's whizzy single-image export
- Permalink (ok, already available by clicking on 'view', but not so obvious)
- Export .osm

Slightly more difficult:

- Garmin .img?
- .pdf?
- .svg? (link to an Osmarender installation on dev?)
- .ai?  
- .shp and other molto bizarro GIS formats

And (bandwidth permitting) we need a Google Maps-like API so people  
can do those nasty mashups they will insist on doing: presumably this  
is all available in OpenLayers but the how-to could do with being made  
a bit more obvious.
