#2864 closed enhancement (wontfix)

[roads] Multiple refs should make multiple labels.

Description

I think that if a road has multiple refs then Mapnik should draw each ref as an individual 'bubble'.

For example, this road has two refs: http://osm.org/go/54zvsT7T

It is highway 24 and highway 26. The road references are concatenated as described here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/FAQ#What_shall_I_do_for_roads_that_have_multiple_values_for_a_tag.3F

At the moment Mapnik draws "24;26" inside the label 'bubble'. I think it should draw two bubbles, close to each other, each one containing one of the semicolon-seperated refs.

i.e. Current: =======(24;26)======

Proposed: =======(24)==(26)====

I hope you agree this enhancement is worthwhile.

Thank you.

It is a worthwhile enhancement, but this has been difficult to do with mapnik in the past. I'll have to see whether something has changed in this respect.

We don't really have a way to implement this, so I will close this as wontFix.
