[mkgmap-dev] mapnik TYP, forest and wetland

I have two examples where a larger polygon is drawn over smaller ones -

near start of 'polygons':

    {set mkgmap:drawLevel=75} [0x16 resolution 19 continue]
    {set mkgmap:drawLevel=75} [0x11 resolution 20 continue]

mkgmap:drawLevel is used to cause them to be output them after all
naturally-sized polygons (same effect as a higher draworder) and they
are represented in the TYP file with partially-transparent icons.

I agree that there is no guarantee that future Garmin software will
render objects with equal draworder in the order in which they occur in
the map, but so far it has worked without exception.
