[mkgmap-dev] Commit r3971: - roadNameConfig_v1.patch by Carlos Davida which adds more countries and languages

Hi all

For United Kingdom I suggest:

suffix:en = " Avenue", " Close", " Court", " Crescent", " Drive",
  " Gate", " Grove", " Lane", " Mews", " Parade", " Place", " Road",
  " Square", " Street", " Terrace", " View", " Way"


prefix1:en = "North ", "East ", "South ", "West "

is not a good idea here for two reasons:
1/ It is very rare for there to be a "way" where an initial compass
point is not a significant part of its name.
2/ "ways" like "North Street", "West Way", "East View", "South Parade" 
etc are very common.

Generally, the suffix should be removed first and, if removing the
prefix gives an empty result, the prefix should be restored.
