[mkgmap-dev] multi-word street search

Hi Steve,

I have looked at "mixed-index" branch. I see I have repeated your idea, 
only in a more crude way.

IMHO you could release this version without optimization for popular 
words. This should be already usable.

I would add some ideas. For example you could split label not only on 
spaces but on hyphen "-" too. This probably would help with German 
streets and some hyphenated names.

As for detecting popular words, I think this should be done for each 
language separately. Would be easier to analyze results and would help 
in case where word has different meaning in different countries - it 
could be deleted only in one language.

A note: I think original label should be always indexed. In current 
version you won't find way named Calle in Germany:

Best regards,
