I tried about a month ago, and found the improvements not very helpful,
sorting by shifting one way at a time for instance. I could not see how I
could check a long route for routing problems (duplicates,
areas/roundabouts, gaps, loose ends)  and correct it to be one single
ordered strand for use in a navigation/trip-planning app. But I will have
another look. I mainly noticed in many walking routes that damage by ID
still occurs a lot.
