While I do plan on implementing a vector rendering plugin, it will
most likely not feature the kind of detail the prerendered Mapnik
tiles do. I am thinking of only displaying route-able ways, their
names as well as place labels. This would make the vector rendering
plugin work with any kind of data set, not just OpenStreetMap data.
