[OSM-dev] Deleting nodes from a way

Hi all.

When tidying up ways (like the jagged autogenerated coastline :) I find 
it would be useful to delete nodes from a way without having to remove 
the surrounding segments, delete the node, and re-add the remaining one.

I have created a patch to JOSM that allows just that. It will only 
adjust the way if it contains BOTH the segments. If it only contains 
one, it will exit and warn the user.

Currently, it adds a separate history item for each way, then the node 

This is documented on trac at:

Imi: If I (or someone else) fixes the history issue, would you be happy 
to apply this to the official source tree?
