Makes ways a sickly yellow if you edit using JOSM.

I remove it when I've checked (usually via field survey, but sometimes
when someone else that I know has been there) that the name is
correct, and ensured that the geometry is correct. I used to just
remove tiger:reviewed, but now I remove all the tiger: tags.

I think the usual thing to do is check to see if DaveHansenTiger is
still the owner.
