I'd like to render my own vector tiles in the Mapbox Vector Tile format (MVT) format using OpenStreetMap data (ultimately for use with Mapbox's hot Mapbox GL JS client renderer).

Is TileStache + Mapnik + mapnik-vector-tile + PostGIS the way to do this? How does one configure Mapnik to render MVT tiles?
