Just a quick question. Is it reasonable to support `oneway=no`? I know
of one that serves a lime kiln that hauls coal one way and cement the
other. The discussion on the WIki states, "I think that virtually all
conveyors are unidirectional, and this calls for an unidirectional map
symbol," but that's not universal.

No objection to rendering this!
