I have implemented a number of significant changes, and released a new
APK at the usual location, http://www.janschejbal.de/temp/vespucci.apk

Changes include:
 - Context menu is gone from EasyEdit mode, nearest nodes will be picked
 - Introduced new UI strongly based on action modes
 - Ways can be single-tapped to select them, or double-tapped for tagging
 - Selected elements provide an action mode based list of actions,
including tagging, deletion, viewing the history (if the node is on the
server), splitting ways (for ways with more than two nodes), and merging
ways (for ways where a second, mergeable way is available).

Two ways can be merged iff they share at least one end node, are not the
same way, and either the tags are identical or at least one of the ways
has no tags.

This UI replaces my suggestion with a separate "way management mode",
which would have been significantly more work and would be significantly
less user-friendly.

Deletion of ways is not yet implemented. I plan to include a dialog
asking the user wheter to delete the way and keep all nodes, delete the
way and all of its nodes (unless they are tagged or part of another
way), or cancel.

Kind regards,
