[mkgmap-dev] mergeroads branch - how to set street labels in style files

Hi Felix,

off-topic, but interesting ;)

There are some features in cgpsmapper, still not available in mkgmap, 
but I think nothing really important. The main advantage of cgpsmapper 
is stability, this is commercial grade compiler.

I was thinking about it too.

What I wouldn't like is to publish code dealing with locking maps. While 
it is not difficult to revers engineer it, direct available source code 
would be quite problematic for publishers, which still use cgpsmapper 
for commercial products. This would include some of my work too.

 > If there is a need, I would be willing to pay 300€ in a shared buy

I'm considering participation too, if there would be a reasonable way of 
shared buy.

But I'm not sure if this code has a future. Mkgmap seems to have great 
support and potential for future development, could cgpsmapper compete 

Still would be nice to release current version of full featured 
cgpsmapper for free.

Best regards,
