One thing that I did not measure was the impact of the additional tile 
splitting, without changes to the options.

Pretty basic, see http://www.polkupyoraily.net/osm/files/mkgmap.args 
(this is the version before the additional splitting).

I was trying to be consistent with amenity=hospital, but I guess we 
could lower amenity=hospital to 23 as well. Hmm, there is no 
amenity=doctors in the polygons file. I will add that too.

I haven't seen that around here. The highway=service are usually 
driveways and parking aisles, not for passing through (at least not by 
motor vehicles).

What would you suggest? Do you agree that service=parking_aisle should 
be 23 or 24? What about service=alley and service=driveway? I have drawn 
lots of tiny service=driveway that connect properties to a 
highway=residential or highway=tertiary and intersect with a 
cycle/footway. It would seem awkward if service=alley were visible 
before service=driveway or service=parking_aisle, because alleys are 
even more minor.
