[mkgmap-dev] Suggestion: set mkgmap:dead-end-check=no when endpoints have FIXME=*

Hi Marko,

Yes, something like that could be done. Not sure about doing it for
FIXME=*, though because if it said FIXME='not sure about road name'
or something else that was unrelated to the routing/connectivity of
the way then disabling the dead end check would not be appropriate.

I don't have a problem with adding mkgmap:dead-end-check=no to the
GB map but I am not really concerned about someone having a dead end on
a residential road. So now, I just add mkgmap:dead-end-check=no in my
style file to all ways that I don't really care about (tracks,
footpaths, residential, service, etc.)
