this shows a segment of the Mohawk Hudson Bike-Hike Trail. i haven't yet 
switched it all over to use

highway=path+bicycle=designated+foot=designated

so the left side is still tagged

highway=cycleway

it renders the same in mapnik and osmarender for both tagging 
approaches. so what renderers are challenged
by this, exactly?
