Is the mkgmap implementation of the algorithm aware of the Garmin map 
grid? Should it be?

I just noticed some jagged lines on this straight way, and recompiling 
with reduce-point-density does not help. I seem to remember that the 
Douglas-Peucker algorithm would not be applied on the closest zoom level 
(resolution 24). Is that correct? Here is the way in question:


The problem is caused by the role=vehicle nodes that I added next to the 
bus stops:


These nodes should simply be removed. Could the Douglas-Peucker 
algorithm simply use a tighter error bound on resolution 24?
