security for moving ways

Holding left mouse button while moving the mouse moves around the map. well...

If you do this near by a selected way, it might be that you move the way by mistake instead of the map, because cursor is 1 pixel at the wrong place... Panic! Westminster is moved into the river Thames! ;-)

It might be useful to "protect" the ways from this mistake. For moving the ways you should need: pressing left mouse button AND pressing the shift key and moving the mouse... So it is clearly different from moving the map. Moving a node instead of the map is also an error, but consequences are smaller, only one corner of Big Ben ...

An alternative solution would be to add an option to enable/disable the "move way" function.

(I too have had a lot of problems accidentally moving whole coastlines instead of just one point on it. This (and the undo) often ties up my browser for minutes.)
