Minko and Charlie just discussed some extra constraints if you have 
contours on a separate layer:


I have not bothered to experiment with contours myself. The NASA SRTM 
data is very inaccurate where I live, and it only covers the very south 
of Finland, to about 1km north of my home. My maps do contain three 
layers: in addition to the main (style=default) layer there are layers 
for style=routes (bus and bike routes and such) and style=control (speed 
bumps and the like). These extra layers are very sparse, and thus they 
cover the whole finland.osm.pbf (not split in tiles). See osm2img.sh at 
http://www.polkupyoraily.net/osm/ for details.
