+Funding.. If exporting data to PDF is hard on servers, put a message that says:

"The exporting service costs a lot of computing time, please donate to
OSM to pay for this
at the moment we have spent £2000 (link to costs) and received 5 pence
in donations".

I believe there are a lot of people that want this service, and many
of them can pay for it..


Have a nice one / Erik
