Ok, my point is that in France, official street names (on street signs)
are "Rue de la Boétie". However, sometimes on printed maps, they
shortened this to "R. de la Boétie", but this is only for space
reasons, the official name remains "Rue de la Boétie".

If in Brasil it's possible to have "Av." or "R." as official prefixes,
then we can simply add them to the list of APPELLATIONS. Can you
provide a patch, or if you don't know or don't want to work on a patch,
provide us with a list of the abbreviations you want to be handled?
