We're unanimous on that part. If you want to try to trace the road, or
change it from 'residential' to 'unclassified' or 'track, I don't mind. But
as I said, in the rural areas around here, it's really impossible to tidy
things up without surveying in person, so the handful of mappers
still need some sort of support for the "things to do" list.
