My initial thought was that we don’t want it to work that way because GPX
tracks don't go down the middle, but then I remembers the TIGER data which
by far has the most single ways which should be dual, so something that
takes these single ways and makes them a pair is I'm sure going to be of
benefit to those in the USA. Not sure its such a big deal elsewhere, we have
the copy and paste function which is pretty easy to use to duplicate a way.
