When I get some time for more renderer hacking (next week?), I'd be
happy to have a shot at writing per-region hacks for mapnik, hardcoding
in boundaries to osm2pgsql.  Are such patches likely to be accepted?

In the case of Australia, the boundaries only need to be a very vague
polygon.  For some other countries, this'd be harder, of course.
