[mkgmap-dev] option --mdr7-del: change or add new option?

Hi Gerd,

My suggestion was simply that it was more logical to remove them from
anywhere, I don't actually use the option.
I would be in favour of changing the existing option unless anyone states
they specifically need to only remove the words from the end of the label.
I would not be in favour of adding a new option unless there are users that
need both implementations (which I think is unlikely).

The removal of words from anywhere would also give better results in the
case where a number of words are added to the label, but one or more of the
words has inadvertently been missed from the --mdr7-del option.

Hi all,

the current implementation only removes words from the right.
Felix and Mike both suggested to change that so that the listed words are
removed anywhere,
and I think Arndt's Style would also benefit.

Should I simply change the implementation and documentation 
or is backward compatibility important? 
If we want to be backward compatible we need a new option.
This could be something like --mdr7-delx or --mdr7-del-all
