[OSM-talk] JOSM nearclick plugin for tablet and optical mouse users

I have updated the nearclick plugin for JOSM which means you don't have
to hold your tablet pen or mouse absolutely stationery when you do a
click to get a node (or anything else) in JOSM.
It's only a trivial thing, but very annoying, that if you have a
slippery optical mouse or a tablet you may find you don't always get a
node when you click because you move it very slightly while clicking.
The previous version didn't really work properly, and it now also has a
configurable distance over which it operates (I found the previously
built-in 7 pixels really wasn't enough on my tablet).
I have added a wiki page for it alongside the other plugins
to offer a download from my site and also amended the plugins page at
This is the first time I've done this, so I hope the procedure is
correct. The source that goes along with it is committed, of course,
assuming I got this right - seems to have worked.
