Hi Toby,

It already reports an OSM download URL suitable for use in JOSM or a
web browser. I find that extremely useful for fixing the problems in
the data.

It will check the direction of any individual roundabout segment that
has at least 4 points whether it joins up with itself or not. So it is
still possible for segments (that have less than 4 points) to have the
wrong direction and not be flagged. I wonder why I didn't use 3 as the
minimum number of points required? I will test with 3 again and see
what happens.
