We discussed how to move this forward in the pub after the hacking on 
Sunday and I think it's safe to say that everybody there was committed 
to making it happen.

There is already a plan to do a major update on the tile server with an 
update of the OS, a reload of the database and a mapnik update and my 
suggestion was that we should aim to switch to the Carto generated style 
at the same time. We just need to work out the detailed plan and 
schedule the work.

One thing Andy did say was that he'd like other people to review what 
he's done to make sure he hasn't introduced regressions - he is probably 
best placed to explain how he envisions that working.
