As well as Africa, how about looking at Hong Kong/Macau/China as an
example of a busy land border which switches sides, including this work
of civil engineering art: 


How can we make a map for regular travellers between e.g. Shenzen and
Hong Kong?

>> How can we make the behaviour deterministic where the map area covers both? For example, you can't make a rectangular box around the UK without including bits of France. If the splitter/mkgmap combo decides to start in the bottom right, the whole of the UK will be driving on the right. So I don't see when the "detect" option is realistically going to be useful. Between the UK and France there is a big bit of water, but there are many land borders between dor and dol countries. Can we get a combined map that contains both?
