The routing itself should not change with this patch, but the routing
description should change.

That is, instead of instructions such as the following,

- Take the 2nd right onto K 4256
- Turn right onto K 4256

you should get the following,

- Take the 2nd right onto Bahnhofstrasse (K 4256)
- Turn right onto Nusslocher Strasse (K 4256)

but only in cases where a street has both a name and a ref (and a
highway symbol, I think).
