If the stylesheet generator have a proper use case like the above, I would
totally vote for it. I wouldn't want to see another stylesheet converter
Also, if you can provide presets for stylesheets and help people to tweak
that in a proper GUI, that would be interesting. But I guess tilemill does
that job right now pretty well.
One more thing is that there is lot of work already has been done to
