If I recall, when we were first working on getting the highway symbols
to function, we used a hex editor to directly insert the hex codes
into the style file entry.

Thus, as a work around, it should be theoretically possible to do
something like this:

highway=* {name '${ref|highway-symbol:oval}<0x1f>${name}'

Where "<0x1f>" is the actual hex code 1f, inserted with a hex editor.
This might be enough for Gert to test this out without requiring any
modifications to mkgmap.
