[Patch] Map status tooltip: ise "Easting" and "Northing" for projected coordinate systems

Description

Since this bug only might occure in the German translation, I'll report this bug in the German language.

Die Felder links unten in JOSM geben Koordinaten mit einem horizontalen und vertikalen Zeichen an. Selbst wenn man in einem projizierten Koordinatensystem, wie Merkator, arbeitet, steht im Tooltip jedoch:

"Die geographische Breite an der Mausposition." bzw. "Die geographische Länge..."

Dies ist jedoch falsch, da es sich um ein x/y-Koordinatensystem handelt. Korrekt wäre: der Abstand zum jeweiligen Zentralmeridian (West-Ost) und - in der Regel - zum Äquator (Nord-Süd). Man spricht oft von Rechts- und Hochwert oder Ost- und Nordwert.

Die horizontalen und vertikalen Striche könnten Benutzer ferner irritieren, da "horizontal" in der Regel mit der x-Achse und "vertikal" mit der y-Achse in Verbindung gebracht wird. Bewegt man nun den Mauszeiger von West nach Ost, steigt der Wert beim vertikalen Symbol an. Wenn man sich vor Augen hält, dass die kleine Kugel die Erde darstellt, wird klar, dass der vertikale Strich der Äquator sein soll. Die Abbildung stimmt natürlich, da ja hinter den projizierten Koordinaten auch geographische Koordinaten liegen, der Tooltip ist so aber definitiv falsch.

Einwurf: In irgendeiner Fachliteratur stand mal, dass Geodäten x- und y-Achse verdrehen. In den letzten 6 Jahren habe ich kein Beispiel dafür gefunden.

Please don't create tickets for translation issues. See Translations to see how to fix translations by yourself.

Argh, you didn't get what the report was about. Okay, let me explain it in English:

The tooltip of the coordinates on the lower left explains that it shows geographic latitude and geographic longitude even when you're using a projected coordinate system, like Mercator.

The correct terms for projected coordinates might be easting or northing, but changing the language file doesn't help here. There needs to be code added, which distinguishes between projected or geographic coordinate systems.

OK. Well this has nothing to do with German language, next time please write it directly in English, there's a good reason why we ask bugreports in this language: it's the only one we all speak :)

Okay okay... Then let me finish the translation.

Additionally: The horizontal and vertical lines, which indicate Latitude/Longitude or Easting/Northing could irritate the user. Based on school math, "horizontal" means x-axis and "vertical" means y-axis. For example, as you move the mouse pointer from south to north, the value on the horizontal icon increases. If one keeps in mind that the small "ball" represents Earth, it is clear that the horizontal bar should represent the equator. Actually, this figure is only true, when a geographical coordinate system is used.
