Hmm, interesting idea, and should not be too difficult to
incorporate into the current routing scheme. The way we
are doing things now is to route based on points marked
on roads, but it should not be difficult for the algorithm
to look around for landmarks neighbouring the solved route,
and provide directions based on that.

Thanks for the neat idea.
