Thanks for the hint.
Last time I asked for this functionality (more than a year ago) I was 
told that it's not possible in mapnik.
As far as I understand it's still a complete additional rendering to 
perform, as it renders once for the tile and once for meta information 
in fact.
Nevertheless: great to know that something exists.
