And a terracer plugin which I find useful for converting traced
buildings to semi-detached* (or however many) properties.


* Slight issue when the width of the two semi-detached houses
together is less than their depth as it then splits the rectangle on
the wrong axis, but this seems fairly rare around here (and I now
know how to rotate objects in JOSM as a result).
