[OSM-talk] Slippy map - Mapnik layer UK coastlines

It seems that the UK coastline is beginning to render better in the Mapnik 
layer of the slippy map (it's a solid blue fill, rather than the odd shaped 
grey polygons).

However it does appear that the source for the coastline might be a rather 
out of date planet file.

In some places, eg 
http://www.openstreetmap.org/index.html?lat=50.85383936185782&lon=-1.315713476905844&zoom=15 
,there is an exact correlation between coastline which is shown in the 
Mapnik and Osmarender layers.

In other places eg , 
http://www.openstreetmap.org/index.html?lat=50.81094579389664&lon=-0.09869895092239864&zoom=15 
,the coastline outline in the Osmarender layer seems to be much more recent 
than the Mapnik layer.
