i wonder if anyone has written any "what-if?" tools to play with / tweak
this data - as in "what if this bus/tram/train arrived/left x mins
earlier/later? what would that do to my trip? how would it affect other
routes?" or "what if there was an extra tram/train/bus from here to
there along this route?"

i.e. open source (crowd-sourced?) timetable optimisation.  by the people
who actually USE (or want to use) the transport services.

Sturgeon's Law would apply of course, but there would be some useful
transport planning gems amongst all the crap.
