Unfortunalty... yes.

Support for ways are currently very limited in JOSM, you have to delete a
way if you want to change the line segments it belongs to. Like you have
to delete a line segment to change the nodes it connect.

Editing line segments and editing ways are top priorities in the JOSM
queue but they may not make it in the 1.3 if I want to keep the release
date "tomorrow".

After 1.3, I promised Steve to work on the applet so it get property
editing and way editing running. I cannot give you a date for this (I
didn't even made up my mind about how to let the user enter ways in the
applet. Recommendations are still welcome).

I thought of a tab in the properties-dialog which let the user change the
list of segments in a way manually (similar to change the properties

When a line segment is selected, this displays the two nodes this segment

The "line splitting" thing is a goodie than can be build based on the new
features later (together with line combining).

Ciao, Imi.
