[mkgmap-dev] [PATCH v1] Reduce number of cuts in multipolygon processing

Hello Marko,

My rule of thumb for committing non-trivial changes goes along the
lines of:

  if you receive negative reports, either fix the patch or convince the
  reporter the're doing something wrong!

  if you receive positive reports, commit the patch when you feel
  confident that it's received a reasonable amount of testing - the
  more positive reports you receive, the greater the likelyhood that's
  it's going to be OK and you can commit sooner rather than later.

  if you receive no reports, either badger people to try it out or just
  commit the patch anyway and if it breaks everything that's their
  fault for not helping with the testing.

Something like that.
