[mkgmap-dev] DEM format Questions

Hi Frank,

If I got that right your program always writes a 0-Bit to signal the beginning of a "plateau". While working on the decoder 
I wonder what this information is used for. My understanding is that both the reader and the writer know when a plateau starts,
so there should be no need for this extra 0-Bit.
On the other hand, the pdf says "Für Plateau-Nachfolger wird ein 0-Bit weniger als maximalen 0-Bitanzahl verwendet!"
Maybe you created special cases because of this 1st 0?
