Hi Robert,

   I haven't looked at your stuff yet. How does it relate to the
improvements of the "add node and connect" mode I have made a few
weeks ago (shift=re-use existing node, ctrl=insert node into segment)
- does it make these obsolete?

Have you read my longish http://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/11
and what do you think of it? Are your changes a step in that general
direction, or is it rather a small thing that makes life easier for
the time until we drop all those modes?

I'm all for dropping as many "modes" as possible. Ideally I would like
to have only two, as discussed in ticket 11.

I have fixed a strange bug in the "findNearestWaySegment" method
yesterday that led to malfunctions in the "insert node into segment"
method. If you're using the findNearest... as well then you should
