I've finally managed to find the time to update my comparison tool [1]
to take this into account. Columns now show for both "Generator count"
and "Filtered generator count". The latter only counts a generator once
if there are multiple on the same building. That's the one that now
gets used in Completeness calculation.

As a result the overall completeness has gone down from 35.76% to
32.00% for today's refreshed update.

So, now, excessively high levels of completeness may be down to modules
having been mapped on different orientations of the same building, but
the underlying building not mapped itself.

Now, low levels of completion may be because the building mapping isn't
complete. For example modules mapped on several different addresses in
a terrace, but the terrace building not split up into those separate
building ways.

I hope all are enjoying the Christmas break,
