That is some nice work.  If you want to start the Github repo, then I'll
join in.  I'll create a wiki import page later tonight to start that part
of the ball rolling.  I'll also be happy to generate a series of sql
statements to show one way of expanding the addresses.  This sounds like
the brewing of a great little community project.
