Thanks for catching that. I tried to improve the comment (in a different
way) in the attached patch.

In the past I haven't bothered to do that, as it's a pain to distribute
ad-hoc files (e.g., we used to have Lisp code for Morocco, then it went
away, then it came back). Also, the Lisp code is not intended to be run
routinely; it's intended mainly to be documentation for the nearby data.
So for now I think I'll stick with tradition and keep the Lisp code in a
comment in the data file. That being said, the Lisp code could be
clearer and I fussed with it a bit to do that in the attached patch,
though I did not take the trouble to write extensive internal documentation.
