Patches welcome.

I'm not saying that as the standard snide answer to everything - I really
mean it. As people have been developing more and more intricate uses of
relations, the barrier to entry for new mappers gets higher, so yes, someone
needs to upgrade the tools to cope. And I'm not happy with being the sole
point of responsibility every time someone devises a new rule for use of

In particular P1's relations code needs:
- content-sensitive behaviour (like reversing forward/backward roles, and
only carrying through turn restrictions to the relevant ways in case of
- relation ordering support
- super-relation support

Yell if you need any help getting to grips with the P1 source.
