[mkgmap-dev] render closed waterway polygons?

Hi Steve,

I think the multipolygon code must be changed to work in the same way as 

The problem is the detection which member polygon lies within which 
other member polygon. See attached picture. The left side shows an mp 
with two members - one outer and one inner polygon. Due to the splitting 
process only the nodes within the overlap are known by the mp algorithm. 
So the mp alg sees the green and red polygon. Nor green neither red 
contain the other polygon completely. The problem lies in the overlap so 
the current mp algorithm ignores this and assumes that green contains 
red - but only if the original green way is not closed.

To cut a long story short: Some parts of the mp algorithm must adapt the 
new meaning of isClosed() and isComplete(). This will improve the 
algorithm because the isComplete() information was not available before.

I will have a look on it. Can you create a branch? That will make it 
easier for me to add my changes.
