As of this morning coastlines on the cyclemap should now be
representative of the OSM data from about 2 weeks ago (I wasn't joking
when I said it might take a while :-) -- this is mostly me setting
something off then forgetting about it for a couple of days... then
andy prodding me again)

We don't update it in pieces, so the whole world gets updated.
It will take a while for the tiles to update completely though.
