We need a text parameter to match the marker-multi-policy added in #1573
I'm testing this but can't figure the current default policy.
Did it change from "centroid" to "interior" while always keeping "whole" as the multi-policy ?
Uhm, I could have found it:https://github.com/mapnik/mapnik/blob/v2.1.0/src/symbolizer_helpers.cpp#L167
So is it using largest_bbox ? And it looks there is already support for that policy ?
So it looks like Artem added "largest-bbox-only" property on June 2012: 2025596 and exposed it to python binding. It defaults to true but isn't found in the mapnik-reference.
Right, I never added it to the mapnik-reference because I was not confident the parameter was 1) named well, or 2) handled all cases. Hence, this ticket. #1573 should be a guide for implementing an equivalently named and functioning parameter.
assigning to 3.x, we should dealt with this work potentially as part of the harfbuzz merge.
