Thanks - that matches my understanding too.  What I meant is that long
long ago I was using multiple state extracts, and I think feeding them
into splitter together, and I found that I could not make cross-state
routes.  But that may work now because of geofrabrik itself being sure
to have matching nodes in adjacent extracts.

Based on that trouble, when us-northeast came out, I started using it,
since it was only 600 MB or so for the img, which was small enough not
to be a hassle.

I was thinking that it might be reasonable to process each US state to
produce an img, separately, and then to just load the ones you want.  So
people may want to try that out with
in the US.
