If you do this, it would be great to also supply the planet-postgis-dump on
the website. This dump can be used to display the maps for gpsdrive. If the
mainserver already creates the sql statements for this, why not also dump
them so anyone else can use the same dump to create the postgis equivalent on
his home machine.
