First of all, I feel that Francis should be using the newbie@ mailing list for 
newbie help...

If you use the lastest version of JOSM, you have a "reverse segment" tool in 
the "edit" menu. Remember that you can put that tool in the tolbar by editing 
your toolbar preerences.

Just drop by Santa Ifigenia and buy a USB mouse for R$ 20 ;-)

Right: if you invent new tags, current renderers (osmarender and mapnik, and 
possibly others) will not render your data.

People from all europe have tailored the Map Features page on the wiki, to 
match local conventions; you should do the same for Brazil. Get a list of the 
different types/classifications of estradas and rodovías, and match them to 
motorways/primary/secondary/tertiary roads.

By the way, are you the one mapping the Tieté and Pinheiros marginals?

You are a bundle of energy, always on the go.
