2. Heavier use of keyword args in constructors. I've put all possible
symbolizer parameters for the few that I've made into the
constructors, which removes the situation in the wiki GettingStarted
page where it's necessary to instantiate an object and then perform
further changes to it to get it all working. In particular, it should
be possible to populate a mapnik.Map object with style and layer
information in an entirely declarative fashion, as shown in this test

[mishok13] The code linked here is an example of trying to map XML straight to Python data structures. I have something other on my mind, something like this:
layer = mapnik.Layer('layername', datasource=some_datasource, srs=some_srs)
layer.symbolizers = [mapnik.SomeSymbolizer(...),
layer.style = map_.styles['some_style'] # optionally, 'default' style will be used if not specified
This code is just a dream, of course. :)
[springmeyer] as far as default styles, I just created #461 which notes some issues around that, which I've been pondering.
