Sorry to have made the initial post and dropped out of the discussion. 
I have been away from the list for a while.  Thanks for all of the 
comments on the Tiger addressing script.  I have worked up an upgrade

Again, I would appreciate any feedback.  I would certainly be open to a 
relation-based approach, but at the moment, so far as I can tell, the 
Karlsruhe schema is the only addressing "standard" on OSM.  Thanks.
