[OSM-talk] Downloading Version 3 of all bus stops in a country

I suggest pulling in the country file and if need be chop it up to load
into JOSM.  Load up the latest bus stops in a different layer then use the
todo plugin and go through them one at a time cleaning them up that way.

Note that the GTFS file bus stop location may not be accurate, some bus
stops are known to be 100 meters out, it depends on the provider.  If you
have a system that announces bus stops for partially sighted people then
that is an indication they should be fairly good but check with the
provider.  Even when they are accurate they can still be out by a few
meters, locally one was in the middle of a road junction so they do need
verifying.
