This is for hand-traced nodes and line segments - there isn't currently a
way to combine line segments into connected chains (streets, if you like) in
the applet, or the new one I'm writing. There will be a way to do this
soon, and when there is, this would make sense.
Rather than having half-finished incoherent features floating around, we're
looking at focusing on the minimum possible feature set that can make a
useful map. Higher-order functions, like combining identical points and
chaining together connected segments with the same names into streets can be
done as post-processing steps. I have the code to do it, if needed.
PS Re: the applet, I'm having slight vaporware guilt :/ It's on its way, I
promise. Hopefully launching tonight, if I don't get distracted
implementing the REST API first...
