CodePoint does not give road names, only a coordinate. What we need is
to add postcodes to every road already in the OSM data. Perhaps that
should be a quarterly project? Although in my book, since 'we' paid the
council rates that paid for building the NSG (National Street Gazeteer),
I see no reason that should not be downloadable data.
