Great work, thanks. I tried it and it is much friendlier to work with
than the old "shift N-shift N-shift N... to eternity" :-) mode.
One other issue it would be nice to resolve (again, in connection to the
"adjacent areas" subject): currently if you have two ways with shared
nodes, you can only select the first (top?) way when clicking on the
shared nodes. The other way can only be selected by using "select-area"
tool and then taking a guess which of the two ways in the list is the
one you want. And also, sometimes you event don't know there are two
ways at the same place, so it would be useful if JOSM indicated this
