That's what I was thinking... There's not much news, as unfortunate as
that is.

In a similar tone, I have added freeform geocode method I proposed, it's
currently in jku branch and works quite nicely in my tests. Please take
a look and comment. I decided to go with a new method instead of
overloading the address hashtable. The examples and all providers have
been updated.

How about a release next week with the fixes now in + this new method?
I'd _really_ like to redo the master provider now but that might well
take a few iterations so a interim release would make sense.
