[Routing] Getting A* to prefer Motorways

there is an iterative way to solve it (not tested jet ;))
1. find a route
2. check the route for restrictions
3. no restriction on the path - route found -> END
4. else (restriction found):
5. increase the resist of the following link to very high
6. goto 1
The resist is the cost-value for a link, for example
the distance if you just look for the shortest path.
But normally, the resist depends on more values like
the type of road or traffic state, so it should be
dynamicly changeable at runtime.
In your example, the resist of the B-to-C link has to
be set to a very high value. In the next iteration
this possibility is blocked. Afterwards you have to
clean up and reset the resist of all links and D-to-C
is open again.
Of course, it is not perfect and there could be
problems in networks with masses of restrictions, but
in normal networks it should work without manipulating
the node-link structure.
