[mkgmap-dev] routing between different maps

Hi Andrzej,

I think the code in the branch (r4211) works quite well now, performance is okay and the number of added external nodes looks reasonable.

next on my TODO list:
1) Find good option name and document it. Current code always uses admin_level=2 boundaries. If one splits each German Bundesland and user tries to install e.g. Niedersachsen and Schleswig-Holstein this will not help.  So, as you proposed, we might want an option that works like this:
The value x specifies the admin_level. This option tells mkgmap to add so called external routing nodes (NOD3 and NOD4) where
roads intersect with boundaries of the given admin_level. Use this if ...
2) Unit tests for the code that checks for intersections

Hi Gerd,

I guess, some optimization would be beneficial. This is probably a case,
where road goes along a border. If there is a series of consecutive
external nodes, you could leave only first, last and nodes which are
junctions. This probably should be done at later stages of compilation.

Or maybe first and last would be enough? I mean, at a junction there
should be an external node added for the second road.
