It's a hack, but the original implementation that has been there for
two years doesn't support anything but the default mapnik rendering
either and osmarender/cyclemap haven't submitted a map key for their
rendering in that time.

It's easy enough to add the support if there's a need, but thus far
there hasn't been so I didn't see the point of spending time on
something that might not be used for the foreseeable future.

Not being able to translate this aspect of the interface however is a
current problem.
