Interestingly I was just discussing overlapping ways with Telenav
yesterday. This will be a very useful thing to detect, but as these
overlapping ways are not visible on the Mapnik map so the R-a-T may
not be so useful for that. Some folks over at Telenav are developing a
JOSM plugin that works in a similar way (iterating over error points
pseudo-randomly and letting you fix them one by one) and may be better
suited to these 'invisible' problems.
