The representation of the plusbus zones in OSM is still as it should be.
Except for merging duplicate nodes they are the same as defined in the
NPTG data. I just tried to describe why the zone for Rye has such an
unusual shape compared to other zones. I didn't modify it to actually
follow the roads. Sorry for causing confusion!
