Seeing as though this thread comes up with _alarming_ regularity, I
propose that we *start* a project for exactly this.

We could divide the source tree by country, and let everyone interested
contribute some country specific code. Once that is done, try then to
create a generic "world-geocoder" of sorts. I am sure that the Mapserver
Community would also like to get involved.

I am prepared to host such  a project, as well as provide additional
mailing lists etc, to keep it off this list (eliminating unnecessary
mail to uninterested parties).

Comments? Thoughts? Flames?

I could have this set up in a matter of minutes, so let me know. I think
that this project will create some respite for all users of this list :)
