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.
