Hi Tom, yes its @jguthrie100. Sorry for the confusion! I actually really
enjoyed writing the contributions, so I'm pleased I was mistaken!

For what it's worth, I also agree with cleaning up the feature requests
etc! The Graphhopper github page is fine really well with labels for
features, bug fixes, requests etc, which could be worth emulating!
