Hi Andrea

This is a good suggestion. I think it was never mentioned with regard to 
this import because we have http://qa.poole.ch/ch-roads/ for quite some 
years now. It does not only cover Bern but all of Switzerland (and is 
based on some other official data). So I think we are well covered in 
that department :) but there is still a lot to do of course.
