Let's give the nominatim developers a couple of days to react to your
bug report first.  No point in deliberately butchering the correct
postcode data.

Deliberately making the data incorrect to fix a bug seems suboptimal.
The risk of a mis-behaving script, not once, but twice, seems
contra-indicated as well.

What's your rush?
