I've done a fair amount of TIGER touch-up in Michigan, but there's still a
lot of work left to be done, and this looks like a great way to get a
handle on it. One issue: Due to the automated name expansion that was done
on untouched TIGER ways a few years ago (which I think only affected roads
in the eastern US?) a lot of these ways have bot-mode as their most recent
user, rather than DaveHansenTiger. (1)

The catch is that sometimes the name expansion changed the name after a
human mapper had edited the way, so it wouldn't always be valid right to
include ways where bot-mode is the most recent editor. (2) I think if
bot-mode is the most recent editor and the way has only two versions, then
it should be in effect an untouched TIGER way, but I'm not sure how to get
Overpass-turbo to pull that info out.

Any suggestions?
