I seriously doubt that that was what Frederik had in mind.

A lot of developers use Gosmore only as a routing engine and something
based on Mapnik for rendering, be it realtime rendering or prerendered
tiles.

The strong points of routing with Gosmore are:
Supports turn restrictions and many advanced tag out of the box,
fast,
the ability to calculate very long routes
and of course open source.
