* Provided just to give an idea of what's there, since it's not obvious 
from the standard style.  Ignore the path colours here, since they're 
showing England/Wales public footpaths and bridleways, which isn't 
useful internationally, but path width is relevant (dashes for wide, 
dots for narrow).  Obviously a "rural" rendering would likely look 
rubbish in towns, but some sort of middle ground between it and what the 
"standard" layer shows now (which looks rubbish outside of towns) should 
be possible - if we're having "one standard style for everywhere" (which 
I'm not convinced about, but that's a different discussion).
