Damn, this one is not an easy one, but you're right, coupling with a
router machine could be really useful.
I flag the idea for future me :) 
By the way, the last days, I've added some users suggestions:
- GPX support for batch import
- geolocation control (locate user using HTML5 API)
- "jump to location" control (smart geocoding using Nominatim)
Plus there is now a German translation and part of an italian one :)
Thanks for tests, help and feedback!
