All great ideas. Since I'm traveling it will take me till next week to comment 
on all of them. In the meantime also give consideration to taking another 
approach: what if Mapnik could provide a list of all street names placed and 
rendered in a given tile so that your street index generation could 
intelligently drop the ones that were never placed? I realize the issues is not 
just the mismatch between the index listing and the rendered labels but also 
that you want as many labeled as possible. But it still might be useful since 
even after many potential improvements to fit more labels I can imagine 
potential mismatches. Without metadata about the exact names actually placed by 
Mapnik I cannot imagine a perfect solution.
