  County borders will be difficult to do programmatically due to alignment, 
and differences in how county borders handled the roads.   A regional 
mapping enthusiast stitched up all the county borders in my state.   I 
stitched the borders of several other counties where I knew the road 
layouts.   It takes a bit of analysis to get started, but it goes much 
faster after finding out the convention for a certain area.
