Looking great.

I didn't play for more than a couple of moments so I may be missing
something here, however if a stop has been merged, ie it appears to have all
the right data, then there will be no wish to merge it with another stop.
There could be a danger of losing data if we did? I think once a stop
reaches a certain level of tagging it should perhaps be possible to disable
a merge.
