I would recommend compiling a newer version of Mapnik (probably the
0.7.1 release or a 0.7.2-dev checkout from Subversion) and a using
seeding script. TileCache's `tilecache_seed.py` works for this, though
modifications were required to seed to TMS properly. You can see the
necessary changes at https://github.com/ajashton/TileCache
