Hedges are also rendered at higher zoom levels.

Mapping hedges alongside roads had inspired me to try mapping roads as areas, not too sure if its been a success.

That's interesting. So it seems that Mapnik _is_ rendering fences. Who's

barrier=wall is very common in the areas that interest me (the lakes),
and very useful info to walkers too.
