OK, to do that, in my next proposed update I'll add a cross reference
from the "europe" file to the "asia" file.  We already do this sort of
thing for Turkey and Russia, two other countries that straddle the
boundary between Europe and Asia.  I've drafted this change:

# Georgia
# Please see the "asia" file for Asia/Tbilisi.
# Herodotus (Histories, IV.45) says Georgia north of the Phasis (now Rioni)
# is in Europe.  Our reference location Tbilisi is in the Asian part.
