         Thanks for this information. I have been worrying about the 
unamed streets that I have been editing.
         Again, I have to ask, why wasn't a tool like this included 
in the original redaction? If someone had planned ahead and given the 
membership this tool and tools like Remap-a-Tron, the whole process 
would have been easier. We probably should have done Remap-a-Tron 
before anything was deleted to find and change work done by 
nonsigners. This is definitely something to remember for the future.
