[OSGeo-Discuss] The existence (and value of) "clean" geocoding tools?

Hi. I just recently stumbled across OSGeo and have poked around to try
and get a feel for the different projects, but still have a lingering
question. Forgive me if this isn't the appropriate channel to be asking
It seems that there is a solid focus on mapping, image manipulation, and
geometric processing at OSGeo. And, in the more broad world including
non-open source projects, there are a lot of tools available for the
mass production of geotagged or geocoded documents. However, the
accuracy of these systems, while good, doesn't seem sufficient when
accuracy is at a premium (from what I've seen they tend to focus on volume).
Are there any existing tools that can be used to tag/code documents,
perhaps sacrificing the mass-produced aspect for better accuracy? Have
I just missed/overlooked some existing tool(s) that meet this
description? Or, am I in the minority in wanting to produce fewer
"clean" geocoded/tagged documents rather than many "pretty good" documents?
Thanks so much,
