Hi Thomas,

Nice to hear from you. Unfortunately I will not be available on IRC. I am 
traveling this week for my brothers wedding. I will be back and around on 
IRC/online again on the 2nd of April.

I can understand the severity of the issues. I promise to help next week when I 
am back. I think the halos problem is simply a caching issue in Mapnik. And the 
other issue is that the Cairo backend is not maintained well to keep up with 
rendering advances in AGG backend. Just create issues for what is blocking and 
we should be able to fix.
