That is brilliant, and it makes all the hard work that people are doing
with adding the road classes worthwhile.
I guess similar coding could be built into the main
(which at the moment draws everything in the same thickness of black,
and then draws everything in a slightly thinner white)
One thing I was thinking was selectively rendering streets based on the
zoom level, so at large scales, it would render class=motorway, then
class=motorway and class=primary, the motorway, primary and secondary,
then everything else.
but I know very little about ruby, or the Magick, or cairo graphics
