I can't be 100% sure without some study but I think it should be
possible to merge across a whole tile. Somewhere like makeMapAreas() is
about right because there it's looping through the resolutions and
driving the subdivision creation. I think the merging needs to happen
around there before the subdivisions are created.

What would be very nice is to keep your existing merging within
subdivision as the default behaviour and then have a merge within tile
option for those with CPU to burn. Something like:

--merge-lines    merge in subdiv
--merge-lines=1  ditto
--merge-lines=2  merge in tile

Using gpsmapedit the lines join pretty well (a lot better now that the
coords are rounded!)
