While I like the new osmarender styles and small fixes I'm against the
usage of this preprocessor for the tiles at home layer.
The errors should be fixed in the source data, not at the renderer.

Besides Frollo seems to have problems with it's max recursion in some
areas, like z12 2035 1350 where it also takes *ages* (step I ran for
more than 15 minutes CPU time, step II used 12 minutes) just to
"Frolloize" the data, not mentioning the enormous amount of RAM it uses

Seeing how long my 1Ghz renderer takes for that tile I can load that
area manually and look for any inconsistencies (with mappaint plugin and
segment order numbers activated) concerning segment orientation and
ordering, upload again and render with Cambridge.

I'm seriously considering to disable Frollo on my clients at the least.
Wikipedia doesn't run a spellchecker on it's data, it's the users that
correct misspellings. OSM should work the same IMO.
