[mkgmap-dev] I would like a maxways parameter and associated code to limit the number of ways in a tile

Dear Sirs:

My definition of "ways" was requested.

Splitter first scans nodes (points of various kinds), then ways (forming
lines, paths and polygons) and finally relations (container polygons for
any or all of nodes, ways or relations). I was using "ways" in the same
sense that I understand that splitter uses "ways" in its messages. I
hope this helps.

--maxnodes sets a soft upper limit on the number of nodes in a map tile.

I am requesting a similar in concept --maxways to set a soft limit on
the number of ways in a map tile.
